Schoolchildren will do the honours at the new Co-op store which replaces the Spar.

The opening follows a £1.2m investment by Co-op which is adding a bakery and creating jobs.

A spokesman said local good causes would receive a boost through its membership scheme.

Hemsby Primary School will be handed a £500 donation as part of launch day celebrations, to support its healthy food programme.

A further donation of £500 will be made to the Hemsby Parish Church appeal.

Samantha Winter, area manager, said: “We are delighted to have undertaken such a significant investment in Hemsby, and proud to be part of the community.

“We are looking forward to unveiling a great new look and improvements to the site with which to serve the community – we are looking forward to welcoming the community into their Co-op.”
