People who are making a difference are to be recognised as part of the Love West Norfolk campaign.

The Love West Norfolk Champions scheme has been launched today (Friday) by West Norfolk Mayor Nick Daubney to find 12 champions, including six who are making a difference in each of the Love West Norfolk themes, of live, work, learn, visit, play and invest. 

People are being asked to nominate individuals who they believe should be recognised as champions.

Mr Daubney said: “In my role, I am so fortunate to get to meet so many people who are committed to West Norfolk and who, through the things that they do, are having a big impact within and for our area.

“We want to recognise those people who are showing their love for West Norfolk by championing the area. 

“If you know someone who fits the bill – it could be your neighbour, friend, colleague, or family member – then please let us know and let us celebrate them as a champion of West Norfolk.”

Champions will be chosen for making a positive difference in or for West Norfolk.  

The organisers said this could be through promoting West Norfolk; supporting a good cause, community or individual(s) in West Norfolk; running an activity or activities which make a difference, or by being a role model for others.

All you have to do to nominate someone is tell the campaign organisers who you would like to nominate as a champion and why.

You can do this via a form on the website 

Or through the Love West Norfolk’s social media accounts  by direct messages or posts using the hashtag #lovewestnorfolkchampion. 

Entries must be submitted by Monday, February 4 and will be judged by a panel led by the mayor and comprising other campaign partners. 

A campaign  spokesman said: “The role of champion is an honorary position lasting for one year. 

“Love West Norfolk will profile each champion and support the champion to continue any efforts to promote West Norfolk.”
