Everything on offer at a £5million youth centre has been showcased to youngsters, families and residents at its grand formal opening.

Dozens of people visited The Mix in Stowmarket to find out more about the services and sessions it runs.

Although it has been running since March, it was only last month that it had its grand opening. The state-of-the-art centre was decorated as a winter wonderland and raised more than £1,400 for the charity which keeps its going.

A spokeswoman for the centre said: “Every last detail, from handcrafted snowflakes to handmade Christmas cupcakes had been thought about.

“The Mix was vibrant with festive cheer and the most eclectic programme of entertainment you could imagine from an auction to live owls and snakes that you could pet.”
