Norfolk Day - 27 July
We were proud to support the first Norfolk Day on 27 July 2018.
Our museums and libraries held special events around the county. Our Community Learning Services, Record Office and Trading Standards teams also supported the day with offers and activities.
Thirteen local businesses were awarded In Good Company Quality Marks for their commitment to tackling loneliness in Norfolk. The Eastern Daily Press and BBC Radio Norfolk received honorary commendations for their outstanding role in bringing the community together.
Norfolk County Council Chairman Cllr Margaret Stone launched the Norfolk Women’s Charter on Norfolk Day. More than 50 professional women and students attended the event at County Hall, which is part of Cllr Stone’s aim to build aspiration in women.
The day was supported by Council Leader Cllr Andrew Proctor and Managing Director Wendy Thomson, who both shared their top ten reasons why they love Norfolk.
