Strong turnout for South Norfolk on Show

Thousands of people enjoyed the best of South Norfolk this Sunday at the Council’s biggest show of the year.

Over 100 fantastic attractions, stalls and fun activities pulled in hundreds of families to South Norfolk on Show at the Council’s offices in Long Stratton.

South Norfolk Council’s Deputy Leader Councillor Michael Edney said, “What a fantastic day! The weather was beautiful and everywhere you looked there were people enjoying themselves. The entertainment, particularly the strong woman, kept the crowds enthralled and the kids loved the Mad Science Shows.”

“It was great to be able to meet so many of our residents and let them know about all the services we offer. Attracting such a large crowd is also brilliant for the local businesses, charities and entertainers who take part. South Norfolk has so much to offer and the Show is a fantastic opportunity to showcase everything that makes it such a great place.”

The Council launched its free table tennis festival Ping! at the Show and the two table tennis tables were packed all day. The festival runs for 12 weeks from 1 July to 21 September 2018 and tables can be found at The Memorial Playing Field in Hethersett, Mulbarton Village Hall, Poringland Community Centre and the Memorial Leisure Centre in Harleston.

Voting also opened for the Council’s Pub of the Year Awards and to celebrate its tenth year, there are four new categories for people to vote in: 1. Outstanding Community Focus, 2. Best Customer Service, 3. Most Family Friendly, 4. Tastiest Food and Drink.

To vote, let the Council know the name and area of your pub, and which category you are voting for (1,2,3 or 4) by text to 87007, email, or via the competition posts on Facebook.

Families also made commemorative poppies on the day which have formed part of an art instillation to remember local soldiers who fought during the First World War and can be seen in the Council’s reception at Long Stratton.
