Cardholders heading into King’s Lynn for one of the Vancouver Quarter’s late night shopping events, which will be held every Thursday from November 27 to December 18, will receive ten per cent off their travel on Norfolk Green’s service 10, 11 and Coasthopper 1 buses.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter centre manager, said: “We’re delighted that Norfolk Green has joined our discount card scheme.

“They are very much a part of the Vancouver Quarter and bring thousands of people directly into the heart of the town every week.

“This initial discount will help make cardholders’ money go that little bit further at a very expensive time of year for many families in West Norfolk.

“We will continue to work with Norfolk Green to seek other opportunities for further discounts and we will announce these once confirmed.”

Will Smith, Norfolk Green commercial manager, said: “We are delighted to join the scheme.

“In the build-up to Christmas, we are looking to encourage shoppers to ditch the car in favour of the bus with this offer of discounted travel.”
