THE launch of a monthly coffee morning for elderly people had a prestigious launch this week, as the town's MP and the mayor of East Staffordshire dropped in.
Andrew Griffiths and Councillor Ron Clarke spent time chatting to some of the people who went along to the Sainsbury's event, which took place yesterday morning.
The Burton branch of Age UK hosted the event to let people know about the monthly coffee meet-ups which will be running there.
It comes after the store announced that the organisation had been selected as its charity of the year.
The coffee mornings offer a chance for older people to get out to socialise and find out more about the services which are on offer through Age UK.
