Skaters in North Walsham are a step closer to getting a new skatepark thanks to a £4,000 donation.
The team at the North Walsham Community Shop - a registered charity which has shops in Market Place and Church Street - have donated the money to North Walsham Play, a community group which is nearing its target of £185,000 for a new skating facility at Trackside Park.
Bob Wright, secretary of the community shop, said: "The last year has been difficult for everyone and the community shop’s income was much reduced. However this has not prevented it continuing to make grants, most recently £4,000 to North Walsham Play to help fund their new skate park project."
Mr Wright said it was hoped work on the skatepark would start later this year.
He added: "The existing skatepark is now quite old and has few features. The new one will be larger and include many more elements that will make it a more exciting and challenging facility for North Walsham’s skaters.
