Campaigners objecting to the closure of a healthcare facility in Cromer are planning to make their voices heard by staging a rally and march through the town. 

The demonstrators have said they will muster at midday on October 14 near Meadow Road Car Park before proceeding through the town centre in opposition to the closure of Benjamin Court reablement centre earlier this year. 

Martin Booth, Secretary of North Norfolk Trades Union Council, said: "We have already had a very strong response to our campaign, with many hundreds of people signing our petition both online and at street stalls, including one last week at the 40s weekend in Sheringham.
