AN ANNUAL New Year’s party is being held this weekend.

In its 34th year, Portsmouth Guildhall will host the party for senior citizens.

It gives people in the city who live in sheltered accommodation or hardship the chance to meet others and socialise.

The free event, organised by Southsea Fire Station, is this Sunday at 2pm.
