People in Cromer can now benefit from a warm space this winter provided by Cromer Community Association

It is located at Cromer Community Centre in Garden Street.

The Warm Space is open Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 12.30pm, and has been funded by a £2,000 grant from the Norfolk Community Foundation.

The 'community hot-spot' is designed to be a place where people from the community can enjoy a free hot drink, a biscuit and a chat.

Visitors can also take part in craft activities such as rag rugging.

A spokesperson said: “If you would like more information, please feel free to visit the warm space when it is open everyone is welcome. 

“This warm space is on offer thanks to Norfolk Community Foundation funding, which is creating community hot spots all over Norfolk.”

The foundation has said the response to its hot spot programme has been “overwhelmingly positive”.

They said: “Many groups who received funding were inspired by the impact of their Hot-Spot on local residents and are continuing their activities into the summer as a way of bringing people together to engage in positive activities and to combat social isolation.”
