Three Norfolk and Suffolk projects will share more than £3,000 in the latest payout from a cooperative fund.

Brundall Allotment Association has been given more than £2,000 in the funds from Central England Cooperative's Community Dividend Fund.

They will use the cash to buy a range of machinery for their community allotments, such as litter pickers, rakes and hedge cutters.

The Wellbeing Day Centre, in Lowestoft, will use £700 to help support a vital project to make a sensory garden accessible in all weathers to residents with dementia.

Another £465 will be given to Dersingham Village Centre to pay for new furniture.
