A Reydon community leader has praised residents after more than 100 people answered a social media call for help in the coronavirus vaccine rollout.
Sole Bay Health Centre, in Teal Close, was flooded with offers of assistance from the community last week, with neighbours offering help with tasks such as taking patients inside and handing out masks.
A total of 110 people offered to help with the operation, with 18 volunteers working every day for the foreseeable future.
The Halesworth Area Community Transport minibus has also been mobilised to transport patients to the health centre.
David Beavan, East Suffolk councillor for Southwold and Reydon, helped rally the volunteers on Facebook.
