The yacht pond in North Lodge Park, Cromer is being given a new lease of life.

The essential work in the cliff-top park is being carried out by North Norfolk District Council , and the £8,500 refurbishment is expected to extend the pond's life by 25 years.

The pond, which has been leaking, is being drained before being lined with glass-reinforced plastic, and the outside will get a coating of non-toxic mineral paint.

Two of the shelters in the park are also being refurbished – one on the old bowling green and one adjacent to the sunken garden – as well as minor repairs to the interior of the café. The men's toilets have also been reopened after being damaged in an arson attack. The yacht pond upgrade is expected to take a week, and work on the shelters and the café will start soon.

Judy Oliver, NNDC deputy leader, said: 'This is just the start as we have further improvement work planned for the park.'
