A high school is aiming to expand community use of its sports facilities, after improvements to its pool.

Broadland High at Hoveton officially opened its revamped changing rooms, including a new one for the disabled, along with a poolside hoist, at the weekend.

Sports co-ordinator Karen Sillett however said the project was 'just the start' as the school was looking to do another �200,000 sports hall changing room makeover along with a �1.5m hall extension.

The school had provided limited public access, but wanted to broaden it out, so the pool reopening was done in the midst of a well-attended have-a-go sports and activities day aimed at children and adults - from carpet bowls and indoor croquet to football and martial arts.
