Sheringham Little Theatre is seeking to boost the ranks of its army of volunteers, who keep the venue running by carrying out roles ranging from set-builder and stage hand, to usher and costume-maker.

The 162-seat venue, which serves up a year-round mix of entertainment ranging from films and youth productions, to a traditional family pantomime and a famous summer repertory season, also relies on volunteers to help out in its Hub cafe and bar.

Kitchen assistant Paula Faiers, whose homemade cakes are a firm favourite among customers, said: "When you come to the Hub, you are served by people who genuinely want to be here, and that makes such a difference in today's world."

Derek Nightingale, who, with his wife Elsa, became a volunteer as a way of meeting new people, said: "Volunteering gives you a feeling of worth after retirement, along with the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting local theatre."
