    “The package has proved very popular, with Shardlake fans heading to Norwich from all over the UK, “ continued Christine. “We have even had visitors from Norway who love the series. It’s the first visit to Norwich for many of our Shardlake guests and the feedback that we get is that they love the city and can’t wait to return.”

  • Help find Dragons Trampoline Club a new home

    Dragons Trampoline Club, Norfolk's only recreational and competitive trampoline Club are in desperate need of a new home. Dragon Trampoline Club is non profit making and all the coaches do so on a volunteer basis.

    Our club is based in Easton, Norwich, and was set up over 20 years ago by our Head Coach Rachel Parker, Our members train both recreationally and competitively, with about 30% competing at both Regional and National level. We also run specific disability and adult only classes, which have been proving increasingly popular and has been a great opportunity for all ages and abilities to get involved with the sport!

    We moved into a designated centre with a local gymnastics club 4 years ago, which we believed would be a permanent home, and allowed us to keep our equipment up full time, purchase new equipment, and allowed us to install a rig - a vital coaching tool for teaching and progressing higher level skills. Unfortunately, they served us notice a couple of months ago in order to expand their own club, and if we do not find a new home by September, we are at risk of having to shut down
