Grants of up to £250 are being offered to help community groups commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
Armistice Day 2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War on November 11 1918.
Commemorative events marking the centenary are expected to take place across the county.
Anyone organising a community event between March 1 and November 30 is able to apply to South Norfolk Council for funding of up to £250.
Chairman of South Norfolk Council, Barry Duffin, said: 'It's so important we don't forget all of those who fought and served at home and abroad during those dark years of the First World War.
