A coffee morning was held to mark the first anniversary of a charity's support services for the families of deployed soldiers.
The celebratory event, which took place on Wednesday, was attended by the charity's mascot, a blue hippo called Freda, who helped children to blow out candles on a cake.
Kate Saunders, a member of Family Friends' forces project, said: "All the mothers and children who attend the coffee mornings really value the service, it's somewhere they can go to have a chat while kids are able to take part in fun activities which helps with their development.
"We have had some lovely feedback a year on and we hope to continue."
