Norwich City Council is making plans for this year's Lord Mayor's Celebrations, which will be held between Thursday, July 4 and Sunday, July 7.

Float entries for the Lord Mayor's Street Procession, from 5pm on the Saturday of that weekend, are now being invited.

Last year it was Norwich Community West Schools Cluster which triumphed in the procession, with Angel Road Junior School taking second place and Pea-Pod Pre-School, of Milford Road in Norwich, coming third.

The success of last year's theme for the procession, carnival spirit, is hoping to be repeated and has been retained for this year.
