More ways to get involved in this year’s Love West Norfolk day have been unveiled as west Norfolk’s MPs lend their support to the day.
From taking one step towards protecting the environment, to getting out and about on foot or cycle, from creating recycled arts and crafts with the kids, to snapping away for the photo competition, the Love West Norfolk resources pack offers a number of ways for everyone to join in on the day.
Schools competitions have also been launched and infants can get involved by drawing or painting their favourite west Norfolk place - this could be anywhere in west Norfolk that they love from Hunstanton beach to their own back garden. Meanwhile, junior and secondary students are invited to come up with an idea to protect the environment.
And, Love West Norfolk has also made available resources such as emailable Valentine’s cards and postcards so that people can send a message to someone special on 14th February, in an environmentally friendly way.
It comes after both The Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP and James Wild MP got behind the day. Elizabeth Truss MP said: “From the distinct marshes of The Fens and the unique landscape of The Brecks, the stunning coastline and vibrant market towns - the natural beauty on offer in our region is there for all to see. I am really delighted to lend my support to Love West Norfolk Day 2022.’’
James Wild MP commented: “We are lucky to have such amazing coastline, chalk streams, countryside, and wildlife in West Norfolk. People of all ages are rightly passionate about the environment and we can play our part in protecting and enhancing this natural beauty.
“I hope that Love West Norfolk Day will be an opportunity for everyone to take time to enjoy what is on our doorstep and to experience something new that our area has to offer.”
This year’s Love West Norfolk Day is the fifth annual celebration of the area, and for 2022, the theme is ‘celebrating and protecting our beautiful west Norfolk environment’. The day will provide an opportunity to highlight the natural beauty of west Norfolk, as well as some of the ways that individuals and organisations can protect the environment. And, the Love West Norfolk logo has even gone green for this year to mark the theme.
The day, and the Love West Norfolk campaign, is led by the West Norfolk Strategy Group which brings together key organisations and partners working collaboratively for west Norfolk. The partners have added their voices in support of the day and this year’s theme.
