The successes and challenges of local shopkeepers will be at the heart of a seminar organised for next month.

The Norfolk Rural Support Network is hosting its next seminar on March 6.

Speakers will include Christian Bone, head of community engagement at East of England Co-op, Algy Garrod of Algy's Farm Shop, in Bintree, and a local village shopkeeper who is yet to be announced.

The event will take place at Sporle Community Centre in Sporle, near Swaffham, from 10am.

The Norfolk Rural Support Network was created in 2000 in response to rural issues in Norfolk after the impact of foot and mouth on the rural community. The organisation holds three seminars a year across Norfolk. Past topics include rural housing, fuel poverty and rural transport.
