Cake, cookies and other treats were on offer as part of an Easter fundraiser run by Bradfield Cricket Club.

Members and supporters of the North Walsham-based club were at the Co-op branch in High Street, Cromer, on Saturday, March 31 running a tombola and cake sale to raise money for bigger and better changing rooms at its pavilion.

Elaine Addison, whose son, James, 11, plays for the cricket club, said the extension was needed partly to cater for an increasing number of girls who were getting into the sport.

She said: “There has been a big drive with the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) to attract more girls to play cricket so we have to make sure we have the changing facilities for them. We’ve had great support from the businesses in Cromer which has been really nice to see.

“They deserve a huge thanks from Bradfield CC and a shout-out for this amazing support.”
