The rose garden in North Lodge Park is a tranquil spot to sit, and has been a real benefit to the community through this challenging year. Cromer’s High Street Co-op store has donated two benches to North Lodge Park, to provide extra seating for the community to use on the grass area next to the rose garden. “We really support the work of the Friends group in North Lodge Park and wanted to give something practical for the community to use”, said Stuart Vail, manager of the High Street Co-op in Cromer, “it has been great to see the park so well used.” Presenting the cheque is Heather Cox, who over the past 33 years with Co-op, and previously Budgens, has raised thousands of pounds to benefit local causes. Heather feels passionate about supporting the community that has supported the store over many years. The Friends of North Lodge Park are also one of the 3 local charities Co-op members are supporting this year – a percentage of all members spend in the shop is given to local charities.
