Thank you. You have sponsored over 360 planks on the new bridge, raising over £40,000 towards the total project cost. Our thanks go to all funders, including Cromer Town Council who funded the play equipment, and to NNDC who have agreed to take responsibility for ongoing maintenance of the bridge and play area. Thanks to Cromer Trophies & Engraving Ltd for their work on the plaques, to The Grove, Cromer for their support. Thank you to all sponsors.

Apologies for the delay installing the final plaques – we wanted to get the grass matting down near the cliff path before they were installed.
