A rugby club is appealing for votes to help it win a share of funding for new changing facilities.

Crusaders RUFC, based in Little Melton, near Hethersett, has between 200 to 300 junior members and two adults teams.

But it only has two changing rooms to accommodate them all.

The club is now bidding for money through the Aviva Community Fund and needs votes to help it secure between £10,000 to £25,000.

The money will go towards the £350,000 it needs to build separate changing facilities for its young members, female members and adults.

Maurice Durrant, club committee member, said: “This is very important for the club itself. Over the past few years we have made tremendous strides with the youth section, and it’s continuing to grow. We want to build on that, but in order to do so, we need the necessary facilities.”
