A village hall in a small south Norfolk village has become a superfast broadband hotspot.

The first meeting of the Wacton Silver Surfers and the All Adult Computer Club took place at Wacton Village Hall, near Long Stratton, following two grants from South Norfolk Council.

They received £300 from the Go For It grant and £1,000 from the local district councillor Kevin Worsley.

Mr Worsley said: 'Access to superfast broadband enables residents to fully access support services including, health advice, learning and employment opportunities, as well as access to social networks that help people keep in contact with their families.

'It is important that the club is self-sufficient and these grants will help that happen. The money will allow the club to get off the ground with my member's grant being used to pay for equipment and the Go For It grant used to advertise the club, encouraging more people to join.'

The all adult Computer club will be held every other Thursday between 1pm and 3pm.

There is an expert on hand to offer guidance.
