The High Sheriff of Suffolk, Judith Shallow, joined residents of Cross Penny Court on Tuesday to celebrate its official opening - a year after the development was completed.

The assisted living development, on Cotton Lane in Bury St Edmunds, didn’t get to hold an official opening ceremony after suffering a host of interuptions towards the end of building work.

Administrator Steph Bullett said: “We opened on July 14 last year but still had builders in because there were delays.

“They found a cross penny coin on the site so we had the archeologists in just in case there was a burial site here - hence the name Cross Penny Court.

“It meant we never had an official opening.”

The development is made up of 56 apartments, all owned by people over 70.

After Mrs Shallow cut the purple ribbon to open the development, residents were treated to a buffet lunch and champagne.

“Everyone enjoyed themselves and a few residents got quite tipsy,” said Steph.
