A north Norfolk community amateur sports club can offer youngsters more training courses and expand, thanks to a grant from Sheringham Shoal Community Fund.
The North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club in Cromer was formed in 2008 to establish a focal point for volunteers in Norfolk to train and improve their life-saving skills. It currently trains three junior groups, aged from seven to 16.
The grant has also enabled it to buy a range of new equipment to help it expand.
Its president Mike Snelling said: 'Our members dedicate over 900 hours each year volunteering with the club, with over 1,000 visits to our club house to use the facilities, and over 250 hours are spent delivering junior lifeguard beach and water safety to the under 14s.'
The community fund supports projects that make a difference in north Norfolk, including climate change, sustainable communities, marine environment/safety, renewable energy and education/-employment.
