A daycare centre for people living with mental health problems is set to reopen for the first time since the pandemic began.
After the disruption and difficulties of 2020, directors at the Merle Boddy Centre in Swaffham have announced daycare services will restart with immediate effect.
The centre, which has served the people of Swaffham for 30 years, is a daycare service for people living with mental health problems, including dementia and other disabilities.
Ian Pilcher, director of the centre, said: "Of course, the numbers are restricted and small bubbles are established, but care can be given to those who are able to attend.
"There has been inevitable anxiety and some hurdles to clear, but with the experience of the centre manager, Georgie Bell, the threshold has been crossed."
