Love West Norfolk?  Let’s Thank West Norfolk

The fourth Love West Norfolk day will be marked on Sunday 14 February – and this year, it’s an opportunity for everyone in the area to say: ‘thanks west Norfolk’.

After the success of the Love West Norfolk Heroes scheme - which saw some 60 individuals, teams, and organisations recognised - and as times remain difficult, this year’s Love West Norfolk day will be devoted to thanking those who are making a difference.

James Bagge, Love West Norfolk’s Ambassador explained: “Over the last year the Love West Norfolk Heroes campaign has revealed to us all the many acts of kindness, generosity, and selflessness performed by so many across west Norfolk.

“Many have shown themselves keen to get public recognition for friends, family, neighbours, organisations, and businesses who have made this harrowing time a little bit easier for us all. This Love West Norfolk Day presents us with an opportunity collectively and loudly to celebrate this enduring and special community spirit–and say: ‘thanks west Norfolk.’”
