Users of the community centre celebrated the landmark birthday with a cake and a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday.
Centre manager Sue Measures said: “It was heartening and wonderful to see how many people turned up to help us commemorate 30 years of providing a wide range of services in the neighbourhood.
