Outgoing mayor Colin Manning’s last engagement in office was to officially open a newly-developed three-bed annexe at the Mallards care home on Wootton Road in Lynn.
The home, which caters for adults with disabilities aged between 18 and 65, has had an extension built and been refurbished, leaving the premises with an extra bedroom.
Joined by his wife Julie, who was presented with some flowers, Mr Manning cut the ribbon to open the new-look home. At the event, there was also a small garden party with proceeds from refreshments going to the mayor’s chosen charity of Help for Heroes.
Caretech Community Services Limited, who own Mallards, have pledged to double the amount raised.
