The Sprowston Diamond Centre, in School Lane, will be opened by councillor Ian Moncur, chairman of Sprowston Town Council, on Monday, December 10.

Broadland residents are welcome to celebrate the revamped community centre, which includes a multi-use sports hall, changing rooms and new kitchens, between 10am and 3pm.

Supported by Broadland District Council, the extension will see the centre being used as a meeting place for various groups, older people’s organisations, dance groups and exercise classes, and can now accommodate larger group activities and offer sports facilities.
