Cromer's town flag was unfurled with a flourish to mark the completion of a £700 project to make over the churchyard flagpole.

A small crowd gathered to watch as Mayor David Pritchard and Trevor Barton, from Fox's Funeral Services - which paid for the refurbishment - pulled the cord to release the blue and yellow crest, during a re-dedication ceremony today.

The towering flagpole was in such a poor condition that it had become unusable.

But the town council were keen to see it back in action and after appealing for help to renovate it, Fox's stepped in and donated the cash needed to fund the work.

Speaking at Tuesday's re-dedication Mr Barton said: 'I read in the paper a few months ago that there was nobody to pay for the refurbishment, which meant the possibility of us losing the flagpole in the town.

'We saw it as the ideal opportunity to represent the town by refurbishing it so future generations can enjoy it.'

Residents can now sponsor the town flag and fly it to mark special occasions.
