Community groups across the region can aim to follow in the footsteps of a north Norfolk club which was among last year’s winners of grants through Jewson Building Better Communities £250,000 prize fund.

North Walsham Gymnastics Club was awarded £5,000 through the fund in 2017, and Sheringham’s Woodfields School was given the same amount for its Space 2 Grow project.

The fund can pay for building materials to improve their facilities - whether it is a new roof for a village hall or revamping changing rooms at a sports club.

Entrants have until May 9 to submit their application.

Celebrity architect George Clarke, who is involved in Building Better Communities for the second year running, said: “The funds donated as part of the Building Better Communities competition are making a huge difference to local charities and community groups across Great Britain, and can do the same for those in Norfolk. We know there are groups doing great work on a daily basis, so it’s an honour to be supporting them and I’m really looking forward to learning about this year’s entries.”
