A bursary has been set up to give budding musicians in Burston a boost.
Bev Kembery, owner of the Burston Crown, said the pub would offer a £500 grant for a child to have lessons at The Hub – Diss Music School.
The bursary is open to all children who live in Burston, attend Burston School or whose parents are Burston Crown customers.
Mrs Kembery said: 'We strive to have the best original musicians from East Anglia performing at the Crown and I just felt that it would be lovely to be able to help a youngster to begin to play or to perfect their skills.
'To win the bursary youngsters should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why they should be chosen to receive the £500 bursary. Geoff Dixon, one of the organisers of WoW festival and a recent judge for Maui Waui's Got Talent will help select the winner for us.'
