The Salvation Army in Beccles have appointed a new minister.

Last Sunday a welcome service took place at the Salvation Army Church on Blyburgate, Beccles, to welcome the newly appointed Minister Harry Woods.

Mr Woods said "I very much look forward to getting to know the wider community and growing the Salvation Army in Beccles.

"I look forward to expanding our programme to meet and help the needs of the local community, one of the ways will be setting up program to support those locally living with Dementia in the town.

"The work we do is varied, from helping victims of abuse, to nurseries, community choirs and food banks.

"Our community work is our strength, all powered through God's love."
