David Fowler, president of Rotary International in Britain and Ireland, helped to kick off the summer season of concerts at the Gorleston Bandstand, owned by the Rotary Club and cut the ribbon to open five new seats for visitors to the Bandstand site on Gorleston Promenade close to the Ocean Room.

His three day visit was part of annual trips to each of the 29 districts with Rotary Clubs across the country to see the work done by the clubs to improve the communities they serve.

During his stay in District 10, which covers Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, Mr Fowler also stopped in Norwich.

While in Gorleston, he said: “I am really impressed with what you have done and the length of time and perseverance in getting these facilities in place.”

The Bandstand is set to host 22 concerts between May and September.
