The Princess Royal will be the guest of honour at the official opening of a sports facility for children with special needs in Caister.

The ceremony, on February 6, is the culmination of a £750,000 fundraising campaign for the sports hall at John Grant School.

Pupils started using the sports hall, named after a former chair of governors Trevor Ward, in September.

Head teacher Gerald Hampson said: “We are delighted that the Princess Royal will be opening our new sports hall.
