Sustainability, energy efficiency and family fun will be on the menu at this year’s Greenbuild at Felbrigg Hall.

Taking place on September 10 and 11 Greenbuild is designed to show people how to lead a greener lifestyle affordably and practically.

Run by North Norfolk District Council and sponsored by two local companies - Crayford and Abbs and Floodsense - Greenbuild offers something for the whole family.

There will be plenty of entertainment for children, lots of food stalls and advice on subjects such as growing your own food, eco-friendly heating, retro-fitting and green energy.

And one of the annual favourites is back - three bags of compost for £1.50, delivered to your car when you leave the event.

North Norfolk District Council leader Tom FitzPatrick said: “Greenbuild has continued to grow in popularity for very good reason.

“It is a region-leading weekend of high quality advice and information about living greener lifestyles, with plenty of fun in the mix for all ages.

“Nearly all of us can improve our knowledge of sustainability, save money and make the world a greener place.”

Parking and entry to Greenbuild are both free. Opening times are 10.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday, September 10 and 10.30am to 4pm on Sunday, September 11.
