An event which aims to encourage environmental awareness and sustainable living in north Norfolk has attracted around two thousand visitors on its first day.
The Greenbuild event which takes place at Felbrigg Hall is happening across the weekend and features exhibitors of green technology as well as lectures and talks encouraging environmental awareness.
North Norfolk District Council’s head of paid service Nick Baker said: “It’s going really well. We have moved the site this year which has worked really well for us, I’ve been talking to all the traders and they are really pleased.
“It’s a really nice environment and a great place for kids to be. It’s about encouraging people to be more sustainable in living their lives and encouraging awareness of our environment.”
This year’s event also sees the launch of a new campaign to cut the use of single use plastics throughout the area.
