A evening gig and a quiz night in aid of the Cromer skate park campaign raised more than £1,300 for the cause.
On May 2, the Cromer Social Services group hosted a rocksteady-ska night at Cromer Community Centre where an eight-piece dancehall band played rocksteady ska.
And a quiz night was held on May 10, where about 100 people divided into 19 teams filed into the Parish Hall in Church Street.
The quiz was presented by EDP news editor Steve Downes.
The winners were Linford's Quiz Team, runners-up were Let's Get Quizzical and Pepsi Sprite were last, despite having excelled during the text acronyms round and were awarded consolation prizes of chocolate as well as wooden spoons.

Plans for a permanent skate park in Cromer have been in the pipeline for more than 20 years and planning permission for a park at The Meadow was granted last year.
A grant of £50,000 from sport England boosted the fund, and now the campaign is close to its £150,000 goal.
