Secondly, £250 was awarded to the 1st Swaffham Scouts, for benches and tables, the 2nd Swaffham Guides, for ovens, the Wayland Carers Social Group, for outings, and the Swaffham Visually Impaired Peoples’ Society, for room hire.

Finally, £200 was awarded to the Friends of Swaffham Infants School, for a ‘learning den’, the Swaffham Town Football and Social Club, for defibrillator batteries and pads, and the Swaffham Cricket Club, for benches.
