Volunteers at a community hall near Fakenham are celebrating a cash windfall after a bundle of funding applications proved successful.
Great Ryburgh Memorial Hall will be given replacement windows and a new heating system after three grants were received totalling more than �12,000.
The money included �8,168 from the National Lottery's Awards for All scheme, �4,122.87 from the Norfolk Rural Community Council and �250 from Ryburgh Parish Council.
Jayne Cubitt, chairman of the hall's management committee said: “These applications were all made at different times, but they all seem to have accumulated at once, which is fantastic.
“It is really good news - the hall is in a really poor state. We have had lots of problems with vandalism, broken windows and so on. They are really old metal-framed windows so to get new double glazing will really help.”
