Students will now be sitting comfortably after dozens of new chairs were delivered to their school’s new lecture theatre last week.

The Swaffham Rotary Club donated £5,000 to the town’s Nicholas Hamond Academy in the autumn, to pay for 60 seats in the sixth form centre facility.

And club officials handed over the furniture when they visited the Brandon Road site last Friday.

Liz Dove, the academy’s head of sixth form, said the facility was vital to enable visiting speakers, particularly from universities and community organisations, to speak to all the students at once.

She said: “It’s brilliant. We have been desperate to have somewhere where we can have the whole group of students together.”

The chairs were funded from the proceeds of last year’s Rotary Visual Arts Festival.

It is also hoped that the theatre will be opened to the public for film screenings and lectures.

Ms Dove said: “It isn’t just for us. It’s for the community.”
