A new fair focused on all things green is taking place in Norfolk this month.
The Acorn Fair is a family-friendly event designed to educate young and old alike on how we can do our bit for the environment.
Funded by the People's Post Code Lottery and in conjunction with the Wayland Partnership, the fair at the Queen's Hall in Watton on Saturday, January 21 will be a first for the area.
The event, taking place between 10am and 2pm, is being supported by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and other organisations involved in all aspects of conservation, wildlife and the natural world.
The theme of this inaugural fair is Nuture, Nature, Future and will feature various activities for all ages on how people can look after their own green spaces and encourage wildlife into them.
