Members of the newly-named West Norfolk Community Sports went along to Watlington Badminton Club to see how they had spent their grant from the old West Norfolk Sports Council.

Junior members of the club showed off their skills with the equipment purchased and club chairman John Church and head coach Janis Baker said how numbers have grown since being set up.

WNCS chairman Charlie Lankfer was impressed with the set-up and said it was great to see so many youngsters actively enjoying their sport. It was a great example of how they want to help clubs in the area to thrive.

Following the retirement of Paul Brandon and Roger Partridge, who had been instrumental in setting up the Sports Council, the rest of the committee decided it was the right time to have a rebrand.

Working closely with Alive Leisure, they are a group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about sport, particularly in the West Norfolk area.
