With the event funded primarily through a grant from Lowestoft Town Council, LNPCP member for East Suffolk Cllr Louise Gooch - who represents the Kirkley and Pakefield ward - said: "It will have a board games’ focus because playing these requires no electricity, is cheap, can be educational, and most definitely is fun.

“I see it as a drop-in session where anyone can just turn up, either alone or in company, and join in playing various games, dominoes, cards, backgammon and so forth.

“I’m seeking anyone interested in teaching games and who has their own and asking them to make contact with me at East Suffolk Council."
