Many months of hard work paid off for Cromer Academy's leavers who enjoyed a balmy summer night of fun at their school prom.

A dozen or so students had held meetings since last October to plan Thursday's event, held at the Northrepps Cottage Country Hotel.

Fundraisers, including cake sales, a staff raffle, and sponsored leg shave, raised about £500 to help defray the costs of the evening.

The cash paid for a well-used photo booth at the event, a popcorn and candyfloss machine, individual cookie favours, and a disco.

The evening, which began with drinks on the lawn, also included a two-course carvery meal, followed by pudding.

As well as the 75 students at the prom, the evening was attended by 20 members of staff.
