How people used social media to show their love for Norfolk
PUBLISHED: 20:00 27 July 2020
Even though we couldn’t be together in the typical Norfolk Day fashion due to the coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of people took to social media to celebrate Norfolk Day. On Twitter #NorfolkDay trended in the UK for most of the day.
Some events such as virtual runs, socially distanced street parties and walking tours did take place, but the majority of people were celebrating at home or in Norfolk’s vast green spaces.
Here are a few tweets to show how you celebrated Norfolk Day in 2020.
