On-site with sub contractors Docherty Roofing and Cladding of King's Lynn, Chris said: "We are installing thermally insulated panels that also have an acoustic backing which means it will be more energy efficient and have much better sound security."

At the same time the project includes replacing the gutters, downpipes and soffits on the building that was originally constructed as Simpsons Hotel and was rebuilt and opened as a cinema in 1932.

Theatre goers will be pleased to hear that the temperature control in the auditorium will be much improved and on the very rare days that it rains in Sunny Hunny, they won't be able to hear the rain hammering on the roof!

A drone has been used at the site by Ryan Skipper, the Sales Director of Docherty Roofing and Cladding. As the the machine buzzed around the site he explained: "We use this drone to survey the site and to monitor the progress; it means we can pick up any areas of concern safely and it also gives people an insight into what we do - and of course it's also a great marketing tool for us."
