Peter Dive is the owner of Full Fitness Gym in Norwich Road, Watton.

After seeing families in the town complain that there is not enough for youngsters to do he took it into his own hands, re-purposing areas of his gym to create a climbing wall, called Just Grip, which he said had proved to be a success with teens and children.
