Schoolchildren will do the honours at the new Co-op store which replaces the Spar.

The opening follows a £1.2m investment by Co-op which is adding a bakery and creating jobs.

A spokesman said local good causes would receive a boost through its membership scheme.

Hemsby Primary School will be handed a £500 donation as part of launch day celebrations, to support its healthy food programme.
