Youngsters in a West Norfolk village have been searching for an array of chocolatey treats to help raise funds for improvements to their community hub.

An Easter Eggstravaganza was held at the village hall in Marham last Sunday, in support of the ongoing project to improve facilities at the site.

And children snapped up dozens of eggs to help raise a total of £412.40 for the cause.

Organiser Tina Hawkins said: “We had a really good turnout and we ran out of eggs.”

The proceeds from the day will go towards the current fundraising aim of installing disabled toilets at the hall, which is more than a century old.

Previous upgrades have included the installation of a disabled access ramp and a defibrilator.

Around £8,000 is needed to pay for the toilet work and approximately £2,500 has been raised so far.

The hall’s next fundraiser is a yard and book sale on Sunday, May 19, between 9am and 1pm.

Maps of all the sites taking part will be available from the village hall, where the book sale will take place and refreshments will be served.

After that, the village’s annual fun day will take place on the playing field on Sunday, June 9, between 10am and 4pm.

Most of the proceeds will go to the hall, with a 25 per cent contribution going to the Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice.
