A new 'community hub' where people can keep fit and active has been opened at Holt.

It is first such centre to be launched by North Norfolk District Council but others are in the pipeline in towns and villages.

The Holt centre on Charles Road hosts Nordic walking, Tai Chi and seated exercise sessions on Tuesdays.

Council senior sports activator Wyn Nurse said the establishment of the hub followed on from previous visits by a mobile gym.

They were aimed at the 50-plus age group, but anyone wanting to get active and try new things could take part.
