The organisers of a north Norfolk carnival are pressing on with this year’s event - but it will be something out of the ordinary.
Sheringham Carnival, which was to take place August 1-9 but was cancelled in its traditional form due to the pandemic, is now to take place as a ‘virtual’ event.
A spokesman said the carnival committee was drawing up a timetable of events that could be done online or within family groups at home, and shared via the internet.

“On Carnival Day we will be hosting a virtual carnival garden party, so you can join in at home or anywhere,” they said.
“In these uncertain times we hope our carnival week can bring a little joy back for us all. We miss you, stay safe.”
The spokesman said the carnival committee planned to launch a new website in the coming weeks where people could download pictures, buy t-shirts or donate to support the event.
