West Norfolk was awash with lion dancers celebrating the arrival of the Chinese New Year this week.

Shoppers in King’s Lynn’s Vancouver Quarter were treated to a display on Monday by the James Uglow Group.

Pupils at the Peapods pre-school, in Dersingham, also had the chance to celebrate.

Apprentice Josh Peel arranged for the children to enjoy a Chinese meal prepared at Silk Road, Heacham.

“Without the generosity of Silk Road, the event would never have been successful. It was a perfect example of schools and the community working together for the children,” said early years lead Jane Kendal.

The Chinese New Year of the goat officially started on Thursday.
