Sheringham Youth Hostel stages open day
An open day held at the weekend aimed to show what is on offer at Sheringham Youth Hostel to families, groups and individuals.
'People do still focus on the word 'hostel' when they think of the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) and we wanted to show that we are much more than that,' said duty manager Iain Wilson.
'We have accommodation ranging from family rooms to dormitories and, certainly in a place like Sheringham, we can provide the ideal place for a holiday.'
The centre, which can cater for up to 100 people, offers fully catered or self-catering holidays, with facilities including a restaurant and games room and beds starting at just �19 a night.
Saturday's open day, which was part of a nationwide YHA scheme, was hosted by centre staff who also ran a raffle to win prizes including �1,000, life membership of the YHA and an overnight stay for four people in a youth hostel.

YHA trustee Paul Wright said: 'Our network of hostels gives people the opportunity to experience places and things they might not otherwise be able to, and staying with the YHA is great way to explore both the coast and the countryside.'
