1/ Hit the beach. The borough boasts some of the region’s finest ranging from Hunstanton’s sweeping sands to remote Holme.

2/ On your bike. The King’s Arms at Shouldham is hosting a classic bike and car meet on Sunday, May 6 (12-noon).

3/ Get in GEAR. King’s Lynn is hosting the annual 10k Grand East Anglia Run on Sunday. Places are full but there’s plenty for spectators to see.

4/ Come on you Linnets. The Walks will be the stage for one of the biggest games it has seen in years when Lynn play Slough in the Southern League play-offs (kick-off 3pm).

5/ Feathered friends. If birds are your thing, the RSPB reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham are bustling as the breeding season gets into full swing. You might even spot an elusive bittern or a majestic marsh harrier.

6/ Foody fare. Asparagus is now starting to appear at farm shops and on roadside stalls, so snap up a taste of early summer.

7/ Wash monster. See the seals on board the Wash Monster from Hunstanton.

8/ See life at sanctuary. Hunstanton Sealife Sanctuary has a major new exhibit this summer, with its expanded penguin colony.
