MP for South West Wiltshire Dr Andrew Murrison was among more than 80 visitors at the Rosemary Goddard Centre’s 30th celebration on July 14.
Chris Dillon, chair of trustees, explained that the centre provided for older, isolated people and was successful because of support from AgeUK and the community. She introduced Dr Murrison and Pippa Webster Area Manager South, Age UK Wiltshire (Salisbury office).
Dr Murrison spoke of the importance of volunteers in the community, and Pippa Webster praised the governance of the centre.
Support for the celebration included donations of food by Mere Co-op and Asda in Gillingham, and helpers from Seeds4Success (Mere Youth Club) who worked alongside the volunteers on the day.
