Cromer charity About With Friends, which supports adults and children with learning difficulties, will be hosting its fireworks night event on Saturday, October 27.

Operations director Jamie Moses said: “We’re hoping to raise at least £2,000. Last year was phenomenal and our numbers were massive.”

He added: “It goes towards expanding our services for adults and children with learning difficulties.

“It helps us pay for new equipment and replace what’s getting worn out.”

The display will be held at Deer’s Glade caravan and camping park, in Hanworth, from 6pm onwards.

Attendees can enjoy a candlelit procession, bonfire, fireworks, a pumpkin carving competition, hog roast, soup, mulled wine, and beer tent.

Tickets are £15 for a family of four (two adults and two children) and £5 for a single.
