Eyes on the skies for fireworks display

All eyes will be on the skies above Cromer Pier on January 1 at 5pm for the traditional New Year's Day Firework display.

Organisers hope as many people as possible will again come to Cromer for the day – but urge them not to leave it until the last minute.

'We're delighted it has become such a successful annual event. And with plenty of good vantage points to watch the display, come early because we don't want anyone to miss it,' said firework committee chairman Jim Bond.

Teas and coffees will be served in Cromer Parish Church with musical accompaniment throughout the afternoon and there will be mulled wine outside. Cafes, restaurants and pubs will also be open in the town

The annual display attracts up to 8,000 people in to Cromer on New Year's Day. Last year it raised more than �4,000 for local good causes as well as funding for this year's display.

North Norfolk Beach Runners will be holding their annual fun run on the same day, starting from the pier forecourt at 3pm. The event is open to all ages and runners are invited to wear fancy dress. Registration will take place from 2.30pm on the pier forecourt for a fee of �1. Runton Road car park will be charging �2 per car for all day parking from 2pm on the day.

See next week's North Norfolk News for more details of how your pictures of the fireworks display can win a �300 camera package from Bennetts Electrical Group.
