The challenge sessions are being staged a the Lighthouse Inn from 7.30pm.

And the evening has been boosted by the gift of two large food hampers for the raffle donated by Tesco at Stalham, whose manager Jim Dawes was moved by the plight of the villagers.

Mr Dawes said:“When I visited Walcott and saw for myself just how much devastation there was, I was totally shocked.”

Mr Dawes was also impressed with the way the community pulled together and the work of Walcott Emergency Volunteer Association (WEVA) wardens.

WEVA was set up more then 40 years ago to protect the seaside village and its residents from flooding.

Chairman Paul Woolston said: “We try and get people out in the dry; four to five hours before the top of the tide when we know there’s going to be a flood we advise people and get them out.”
