Volunteers are sought to encourage people in Norfolk to embrace composting.

People are being urged to sign up to become one of Norfolk County Council's master composters.

The council currently has 80 volunteers who spend 30 hours each year passing on composting hints and tips.

That might be by talking to friends and neighbours, giving presentations in schools, writing for newsletters or by helping to establish a community/village composting scheme.

A free, two day training course will be held at Holt Hall Environmental and Outdoor Learning Centre on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday. March 26.

To find out more and to apply for a place email mastercomposters@norfolk.gov.uk or call 0344 800 8020.
