A community centre in Worcester that is home to more than 50 groups marked its 30th anniversary with a trip down memory lane.

The Lyppard Hub held a celebratory afternoon with staff, trustees, volunteers and city council representatives in attendance.

The centre was opened on March 27, 1993 and is now an independent charity and focal point for many people in the area.

There was a chance to see displays from the archives of photographs and footage marking the many successful events held at the centre over the past three decades.

People were also invited to get involved by decorating a puzzle piece depicting their group or activity, which were then all fitted together to create a ‘Community Jigsaw Puzzle’ a one-off piece of artwork to display in the centre.

Centre manager, Lauren Cartwright, who has been a part of the centre for 20 years, said: “ This is such a special day for the hub and we are all very proud of what this centre has achieved over the years and to see how much it means to so many people.

“The fact that the centre has grown over the years, it is clear that the hub has always benefitted our community and we hope to continue doing so for many more years to come.”

Home to more than 50 different clubs and activities, the centre also develops and implements its own groups such as dementia support, a bereavement café, youth club, parent and toddler groups and community coffee mornings.

The biggest event organised by Lyppard Hub and supported by Warndon Parish Council and Tesco Warndon, is the hugely popular Warndon Villages Summer Fete.

This year the event will be held on Sunday, July 9 and everyone is invited to come along.
