I’m sure many of you will have heard of the Norfolk Community Foundation: a fantastic organisation which provides essential funding to Norfolk charities and good causes.

Opportunities4Communities is a way for people to offer their help to the charities, voluntary organisations and community groups in Norfolk that really need it.

A Circus Carol

Teeth are brushed, pyjamas are on and stories read. I’ve just finished tucking a very happy and rather excitable child into bed after our wondrous trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to watch A Circus Carol.

A Circus Carol is part of A Right Royal Christmas running a Norwich Theatre Royal from 16th December to 24th December and it is so good to see the Theatre back up and running, especially with such a great programme.

Boating on The Broads this Half Term

I am having the best time with L this half term. His school broke up Thursday and between visits to the zoo to meet a baby giraffe and pumpkin trails and patches we’ve been busy everyday.

But there’s one thing we haven’t managed to fit in. A day on the Broads in a picnic boat.

We spent a very happy and hot day at Roarr! with a very happy and hot child this week. During lockdown I had asked L to write down anything that he wanted to do once we were able and visiting the dinosaurs was on that list, so when we were gifted tickets to visit I couldn’t wait to tell him.
