The new year starts with a bang at Cromer as the resort holds a free fireworks show on the first day of 2006.

Thousands of people flock to the seaside town for a teatime display on the pier.

But this year there are added attractions: some fun run races for those wanting to limber up their legs, and a quiz for those keen to exercise their brains.

The fun races, supervised by the North Norfolk Beach Runners, will have four classes over a one-mile course on the promenade, for under-13s up to seniors, and an open race for fancy dress.

Registration is on the pier forecourt at 2.30pm with entry £2.

Quiz sheets, giving families a chance to test themselves on a walk around the town, are available from the parish church all afternoon.

A torchlit procession leaves the church at 4.30pm, and the fireworks will be at the pier at 5pm, weather permitting.
