The future of a popular roller-skating club which is faced with being turfed out of its home will be debated by councillors on Tuesday (February 2).
A petition was signed by more than 1,000 people to save Retroskate, which is based at the Great Yarmouth borough council-run Marina Centre on the sea front.
Any petition which receives more than 900 signatures will be debated by the council.
The venue is one of the UK's only dedicated roller skating rinks but faces closure as part of plans to renovate and upgrade the leisure centre in Marine Parade.
