Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Gateway Club has wished its longest-serving volunteer helper, Joyce Beard, a happy 90th birthday this month.

Joyce has been a helper for 40 years since the club originally opened in 1979 and has continued to help and support its activities through the years.

The Gateway Club is based at the BAY Centre in Cassis Close and provides social activities for adults with learning difficulties.

A spokesman said: “Joyce is a very valued part of club. Joyce has been an  active member of the community for many years, including serving on Burnham and Highbridge Town Council.”
