Getting people into the water and swimming safely is the goal of a new programme being launched by the North Norfolk Vikings Swimming Club.

A hockey club’s junior members have been embracing out-of-season training as an excuse to finally get back on the pitch after months of lockdown.

It seems a long time ago, but 2019-20 was an outstanding season for North Walsham with the Vikings winning London One North by a massive 29 points – and 20 weeks on from the game that sealed that triumph they were finally presented with the championship winners’ plaque.

The news that some fans may be able to return to Carrow Road for live football within three months has largely been greeted with positivity – but also with warning that the right safety procedures have to be in place.
