Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman visited the North Elmham Community Smallholding, near Dereham, on Saturday.

He said, “North Elmham Community Smallholding is a great example of rural community self-help and an inspiring demonstration of what can happen when a community comes together and involves the wider public in food and farming.

“At the heart of the smallholding is The Norfolk Way vision, that we can have a modern, hi-tech, prosperous economy and still retain Norfolk’s special and historic connection with the land. I really enjoyed visiting the smallholding and I hope it continues to thrive and engage many more local people in its future.”
