The event was attended by councillor Phil Gomm, who joined in the dancing.

Mr Gom m said: “It’s a fantastic service and even though it covers a broad area now, I would like to see it rolled out even further.

“It is about helping people connect with a whole range of services, from fun activities to computer support.”
