A scheme to install computers at village halls is ready for take off in north Norfolk.
The unemployed youngsters behind the project will soon be pulling a warplane down a runway to help get the fundraising off the ground.
Villagers at Bacton, Mundesley, Trunch and Dilham will be the first to benefit from the project, which is part of a 20-week Prince's Trust course designed to improve the CVs of 16- to 25-year-old jobseekers by giving them the experience and skills to help them find a permanent job.
The band of 10 youngsters want to raise £500 to set up computers with internet access in village halls.

The project was inspired when the group discovered cut-price equipment from a school and business which were replacing their computers.
Nick Stanley, 18, who is on the course, said they wanted to give the parishes an opportunity to get people online.

With negotiations with internet service providers under way, the troupe are hoping to have the equipment up and running in the coming weeks.
To raise money for the project the group is doing a sponsored Tornado “pull” at RAF Marham where the 10 volunteers will pull a 14,000 kg Tornado aircraft along a runway.
