THE Princess Royal will be in Caister, near Yarmouth, today as guest of honour at the official opening of a sports facility for children with special needs.

The ceremony is the culmination of a £750,000 fundraising campaign for the sports hall at John Grant School.

Pupils started using the sports hall in September.

Headteacher Gerald Hampson said: “We are delighted that the Princess Royal will be opening our new sports hall. It is fantastic to have these outstanding facilities on site and reduces the need for pupils to travel into Yarmouth to access sports accommodation.”
