STAFF at Nailsea Disability Initiative celebrated the official opening of its new base.

The charity, which offers advice to the elderly and disabled, has moved into new premises at 10 Crown Glass Place and MP Liam Fox declared the office and advice centre open on Friday.

Staff celebrated with champagne and cake after four years of fund-raising to find a home in the town centre.

Charity chairman, Chris Baker, said: "We are really pleased we are here. People can see where we are now because we are in the centre of town and the office is easy to find."

The charity was previously based at Nailsea Methodist Church, Silver Street, but staff were only able to open once a week.

The charity will now be open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Chris is hoping to find more volunteers to enable the organisation to open up five days a week.
