  • Busy Week

    RNS Two days at Norfolk Show, met up with surprising number of people from the ward this year. Sorted out two meetings plus discussed needs and even sorted out at least one problem.

  • ROYAL NORFOLK SHOW

    Will be off to the Royal Norfolk Show in a few minutes. To me this has been the premier event on the calendar for over 50 years. I visited the Costessey showground for the very first Norfolk Show there 60 years ago as a child and started my business visits in 1965. Whilst I no…

UKIP are the clear winners and Lib-Dems are the clear losers, Lab did reasonably well and Con’s need to review where we…
