A community centre in Ipswich is getting ready to welcome back residents after receiving a revamp.
Maidenhall Residents' Association has carried out repairs to its community centre, which it hopes to re-open fully on April 12.
The association is also selling items through its click-and-collect shop so it can create more space and raise funds.
Joanna Billings, who started volunteering with the residents' association after setting up a Covid-19 aid group in the area, said: "We haven't had any meetings yet to take a final decision about it.
"But we were thinking of having little coffee mornings or craft groups.
"It would be really nice to have a place where people can help each other."
Mrs Billings, a mum of two, also hoped to get more people involved.
