Excitement over which town and village will be crowned Norfolk's most spick and span is growing.

It comes following the announcement of Norfolk Day’s Big Clean Up - a call-to-arms campaign launched to get people motivated to spruce up their local area.

As part of the initiative, Norfolk Day’s Best Kept Town and Village Competition was launched to crown Norfolk’s gem.

We want to hear what work goes on behind the scenes, whether as part of Norfolk Day or not, so we can identify the county’s best kept.

Many individuals and groups have already been hard at work.
