Today we are looking at the online business, www.fitnessdiscountcodes.co.uk. They follow in the footsteps of other large discount code and cashback websites. Whilst they are not based in Norwich specifically they do feature a number of Norwich based businesses on their site and are able to direct a large amount of internet traffic to them.

Whilst you may think that there are already a large number of discount code websites, as the name suggests, this one caters only to retailers around the fitness niche. They are able to separate themselves from other similar websites in that they provide more than just discount codes but also reviews on retailers and their products as well as general fitness training and nutrition advice.

They originally created the website to fill, what they felt, was a gap in the market. Whilst there was already one or two direct competitors in the fitness niche they felt there was room for improvement. The websites that were already present only had restricted access, requiring users to register for a card which would create a time delay. Of course most people only look for a discount code when they are already at the checkout and see the discount code box, so having to wait is not really an option. Fitness Discount Codes provide those discount codes straight away on their website so you can save money in an instant, hassle free.

South Norwich News decided to give it a twirl and since we had to do some shopping anyway we decided to use their website to shop from Musclefood. Musclefood are essentially an online butcher that also stock some supplements, nut butters and other fitness orientated food. We were very impressed with the service and it actually came out to be much cheaper than the local Tesco so they get two thumbs up from us and a repeat customer. Of course, if you would like to use their voucher codes or hidden offer code as Musclefood like to call it you can find them here.

In order to support local jobs and business we routinely feature a local business, if you would like to be featured please contact us so that we can include you on our website.

A local primary school has secured over £200,000 of funding for an outdoor play area.

It’s the result of a campaign, petitioning the council to make use of derelict land nearby.

Since 2007, pupils at Henderson Green Primary School, just off Bowthorpe Road, have only had a small playing field to play on. The school grew larger when Norfolk County Council reorganised schools from the middle school system.

Last year, a petition with 800 signatures was handed into Norfolk County Council, asking for use of an area of derelict land as playing fields. Norfolk County Council has now agreed to allocate £225,000 to create the play area.

Green Party County Councillor for Wensum ward, Marcus Hemsley, who helped with the campaign, said: ”I’m really glad the administration at County Hall listened to local people on this issue. It shows that even in these difficult economic times, if enough people come together we can make big things happen. This will make such a difference to the children at the school.”

A consultation is due to start on plans to develop an area of parkland off Dereham Road.

A residents’ group want the space at Wensum View Park to serve the whole community, and are getting help from a successful project on Grapes Hill.

Norwich City Council has agreed to fund a consultation on the future use of Wensum View Park off Turner Road. If approved, then work will begin designing and creating a community garden.

The newly-formed Wensum View Park Community Garden Group want the park to serve as many of its community as possible, keeping space for dog walking, a play area for children and developing a community garden for residents to enjoy, where they can grow and share food and plants together.

Residents who helped create Grapes Hill Community Garden, which will celebrate turning one with a public event on Sunday 8th July, are offering help and advice to the new group. They successfully transformed a derelict piece of land just off Grapes Hill into a garden for the whole community.
