Freemasons have donated £500 to Taverham Junior School to help repair the roof of the local swimming pool.

The money was presented to the school by members of the Bishop Herbert Lodge in Drayton, near Norwich.

Worshipful master Mark Turner said: 'Being based in Drayton, we always like to help out local community and this donation will help the children continue to enjoy their swimming.

Michael Sylvester, from the school said: 'Being near to the coast, we aim to teach every pupil how to swim before they leave junior school so they can enjoy the sea safely.'
