South Norfolk Council’s Deputy Leader Michael Edney said: “We hope as many people as possible can join us on the first Norfolk Day and help us get into the record books.

“It’s going to be a fantastic day of celebration across the county and we are proud to be part of it.”

From 1pm-2pm the Council will be attempting the world record outside the visitor centre.

Mr Edney added: “There are so many things that make South Norfolk a wonderful place to live and visit, this is a great chance for us to celebrate them in the Broads National Park.”

To join in and be a record breaker, visitors will need to wear any rabbit or hare ears, a tail and 12 whiskers, which can be painted on.

Councillor Edney added: “Come along, have a great day and get into the record books.

“You’ll also be able to find out all about our brand new virtual reality heritage trails in Wymondham, which start at Henry, our GoGo Hare on the Market Place.”

The very first Norfolk Day, led by the EDP and Norwich Evening News in partnership with BBC Radio Norfolk, will take place on Friday, July 27.
