The Unity Centre, which offers members, parents and carers a place to relax and meet new people, marked Harry and Meghan's big day with a feast of cakes, singing and dancing at its base in Lowestoft.

Service users had already enjoyed preparing for the day by making posters and Union Jack bunting, as well as planning the day's proceedings.

Music was provided by Bangers and Crashers and DJ Jordon, while there was also singing from Louie Lou.

A highlight from the day was one of the members, who has learning and hearing difficulties, producing an impressive rendition of the national anthem on her recorder over the microphone.
