Cromer showcases community life and heroes
Cromer people can honour their local unsung heroes, find out about their town, and get an update on two major projects at the annual open day and meeting next Thursday April 7.
During the day the parish hall local groups will be manning displays to showcase the work they do in town from 11am to 5pm.
More than 30 stands reflecting local life will include the lifeboats and coastguards, police, crab and lobster festival, Royal British Legion, Age UK, Scouts, amateur dramatics, flower and bowls clubs and the church.
In the evening from 7pm the annual town meeting includes an update on what is happening with the bid to revive Cromer's disused bus station and with the ongoing �15m rebuild of the town's hospital.
People can question their town councillors on local issues, and a range of organisations will receive donations from the New Year's Day fireworks.
