Norwich City star Todd Cantwell made a welcome return to his hometown to help launch a new gym.

The Canaries midfielder was in Dereham for the opening of NR Health and Fitness Club, replacing the former Chattels department store on Norwich Street which closed last year.

In July, owner Nathan Gostling was given the green light to transform the premises into his third branch, adding to existing gyms in Wymondham and Attleborough.

He initially planned to open in October, but started taking on members during September and charged £5 for use of the facilities for the remainder of the month.

All September's proceeds were donated to children's neuroblastoma charity, Stacey's Smiles.

"We had a great open evening and we've got 750 members already which is amazing," said Mr Gostling, who lives in Mattishall.

"The gym's in a fantastic location and we are bringing people into the centre of town. A lot of surrounding businesses say their footfall has really increased."
