Campaigners fighting to revive a closed care facility have staged another demonstration in its support.

Norfolk County Council opted to shut down Benjamin Court in Cromer earlier this year in favour of providing a greater level of service in the home.

The facility provided inpatient reablement care for people recovering from hospital treatment, allowing them to be discharged quicker.

North Norfolk News:

But in a shake-up of the services it provides, the council chose to close Benjamin Court and a similar facility in Costessey, Grays Fair Court - instead providing a greater level of home-based support.

But the closure has sparked outcry and on Saturday, October 14, campaigners staged another demonstration calling for it to either be reopened or repurposed for a similar service.

Around 100 people joined the march through the streets of Cromer with banners, while there were also addresses from North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker and Norfolk Norfolk District Council leader Tim Adams.

Martin Booth, campaign organiser, said: "The impact on hospitals of the lack of reablement beds, resulting in so-called bed-blocking and ambulance delays are among the worst in the country."
