An Olympic trampoline star has given her seal of approval to a new £2.6m investment at a Norfolk holiday park that promises fun galore for families.
Double Olympic medallist Bryony Page has officially opened Caister-on-Sea Holiday Park's Adventure Village, which includes an outside play area with bungee trampolines, an aerial trail, a freefall jump and junior 4x4 off-roaders and segway experiences.
The area also includes an outdoor cinema and a pop-up bar.
Bryony, 30 and who won bronze in last month's Tokyo Olympics and a silver at the 2016 games, was joined at the launch by members of the Dragons Trampoline Club as she tried out the new adventure area.
Giving her seal of approval Bryony said: "There is so much to do, every day something is action packed, and you could never be bored.
“This would have been a dream of mine to come to as a child, actually its pretty good as an adult too.”
