King's Lynn will be commemorating two great causes this week with dazzling displays at Town Hall.

LGBT History Month is celebrated in February and this year marks the 50th anniversary since the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales.

On the evening of Thursday, February 23, West Norfolk council will display rainbow lights outside Town Hall on Saturday Market Place.

Councillor Patrick Rochford said: 'As an openly gay councillor, it is important to me that my council recognises the significance of LGBT History Month and so I'm delighted that we'll be lighting up the town hall in the rainbow colours.'

On Friday, February 24, the Town Hall will be decorated with purple lights to support the Rotary Club's campaign to eradicate polio. Every year, the Rotary Club ask people to donate and wear a crocus to raise awareness of this debilitating disease.
