READER LETTER: ‘It has been a wonderful and busy year as chairman’
- Credit: Archant
May 30 was my last day as chairman of north Norfolk, when I become unfrocked.
It has been a huge privilege to serve the people of our marvellous county which my partner Ros, and I have tried every trick to promote. From Buckingham Palace last June to the past three weeks it has been an unrelenting tour of all that is good.
My fellow 'chains' from King's Lynn through to Yarmouth including Broadland, Breckland, South Norfolk and all our local mayors work incessantly for the common good of Norfolk and I am extremely proud of them.
My last reception was at the Mo Museum at Sheringham which is a must do for all families, a super evening, followed by four events on Cromer Pier.
National Blue flag Day was one to be particularly proud of with our six awards.
Of course we held the Antique Road Show where I must say a big thank you for our hard working team from North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) who lifted, shifted, painted and repaired until late the previous evening.
Then to the opening night of Sister Act, the best production for years at the pier theatre and my last official function.
- 1 Norfolk-born entrepreneur is second richest person in country
- 2 Two Norfolk seaside hotels named among the best in Britain
- 3 Revamped 'hidden gem' restaurant hoping to put village on map for food
- 4 Hundreds of motors park up for classic vehicle day at Norfolk gardens
- 5 Cafe and shop along Norfolk Broads up for sale with 'rare opportunity'
- 6 100 East Anglian events you cannot miss this summer
- 7 Can you answer these 10 GCSE questions designed for 16-year-olds?
- 8 Iceland offers over 60s discount on shopping bill every week
- 9 Cash boost for church campaign backed by Normal for Norfolk star
- 10 Homes in Norfolk amongst least likely to be burgled
It has been a wonderful, very busy year and I feel so proud to be a north Norfolk man.
Who would live elsewhere?
