A regenerated former school will stage its official opening as a modern village centre - exactly four years after its last open day.
And much has changed since the dilapidated Pennoyer's School in Pulham St Mary opened its doors as part of a BBC Restoration Roadshow in 2006.
The former Victorian school with 15th century guild chapel, which has undergone a �1.5m makeover, will open as a community, heritage, business and education centre on Sunday, August 15 as part of a Restoration Roadshow Revisited event.
News of the official opening comes as some community groups begin to use the Pennoyer's Village Centre and work continues to fit out the cafe and IT centre.

The village centre already has a team of more than 50 volunteers and is set to deliver a programme of adult education courses in the autumn and is already taking private bookings.
