The council will be throwing open its doors from 11am till 4pm to celebrate everything that makes South Norfolk a fantastic place to visit, live and work in.

Last year 3,000 people joined in the fun and this year the council are expecting big numbers again at the popular annual community event held at South Norfolk House at Cygnet Court.

Local resident Vicky Moore said: 'We had a wonderful time last year, both my kids had their faces painted and I couldn't get them off the bin lorry.

'There were so many lovely cakes and yummy local food to buy and joining in the Zumba dancing was great fun. We will definitely be going again this year.'
