A campaign to get more people active and interested in sport in south Norfolk has been given a funding boost.
South Norfolk Council's new Community Sport Network has just scooped more than £19,000 funding from Sport England.
The network now has a total of more than £70,000 at its disposal, and the new money means that many activity projects can get under way.
These range from a cycling tour of Diss for families on June 29 to late night floodlit basketball for 16 to 25-year-olds.
For older residents, it will help fund yoga, tai chi and pilates classes and for families, an aquathon at Wymondham pool, where parents and children compete as a team.
It also brings in the people who will make it happen; supporting coaches and volunteers who run sporting activities, and will hopefully attract more people to get involved.

It's an exciting programme of activities and sports.
“We're reaching out to everyone whether you are on the couch reading this, or heading down to one of our leisure centres. My message to you is grab this chance, and get active.”
