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.
The pool opening was done by Norfolk Paralympic Beijing bronze medalist archer Mel Clarke who welcomed the new disabled facilities and felt the 2012 London games would help raise awareness of the need to make sport available to all.
