A community group in South Norfolk made sure that they were not going to miss an England game even though they were about to sign in a new president.

The Rotary Club of Diss and District had planned its hand over ceremony on the same day England were set to take on Colombia.

But the quick thinking Diss Rotarians moved the meeting an hour forward and arranged for a giant screen to show the match.

During the ceremony Alison Bannister was made president as she succeeded Clive Sinfield.

She is known in the community for hosting activities at the Methodist Church and her time as manager of Citizens Advice, Diss.

Once the meeting was over, staff at the Park Hotel arranged for a giant screen to be brought in and the club was able to sit down and watch England beat Columbia on penalties to make it though to the quarter-finals.
