Preparations are well under way for the Archbishop of Canterbury's visit to Caister next month.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby will visit the coast on November 8 as part of a three-day tour of the Diocese of Norwich.
While there, he will visit Caister Lifeboat Station where he will lead a short service from 11am.
Schoolchildren from Caister Junior School will contribute, with a dramatisation of the Caister Lifeboat Disaster to be performed.
The Archbishop will then board the lifeboat, and lay a wreath at sea for all those who have died at sea in wars over the last century.
