Cromer Lawn Tennis and Squash Club have opened their improved and extended table tennis building in the town.

It was completed following the award of an £8000 grant from North Norfolk District Council's Big Society Fund which was used towards the costs of removing the existing tin shed, upgrading the existing timber building and construction of a timber extension to double its size.

The club, which match funded the project, will use the new building to house activities including table tennis, yoga, pilates, aerobics, and Zumba.

Chairman Nick Amis thanked the council at the opening event, saying the project could not have gone ahead without the grant.

Local authority leader Tom FitzPatrick, chairman of the Big Society Fund Grants Panel, cut the ribbon on the extension and said: 'This type of project encourages healthy physical activity for all ages and we were delighted to be able to help with the funding.

The ground is owned by the council and managed by the club which provides facilities for members and the public.
