Your Local Paper is showing its support for next Friday’s Love West Norfolk Day.

As well as being Valentine’s Day, February 14 has been designated as a special day to celebrate this area by organisers of the Love West Norfolk campaign.

Promoters of the campaign visited the YLP office in King’s Lynn as they launched a special resources pack people can use to take part in the day.

And, in celebration of Valentine’s Day, special West Norfolk scene Valentine cards have also been produced.

Businesses and individuals have been encouraged to take part in the day and download the pack which has posters, selfie ideas, postcards and other suggestions.

Former Norfolk High Sheriff James Bagge, the campaign’s ambassador, has encouraged people to get involved.

He said: “This is our chance to tell the world how much we all love our own West Norfolk, its history, its people, its culture.

“Go for it! It’s a special part of the world and one to be proud of.”

Campaigners have suggested other ways people could get involved such as making and sharing a film about the area, sharing West Norfolk pictures on social media or supporting a local charity with a Love West Norfolk cake sale.

Schools have also been encouraged to take part by using the selfie signs and entering a Love West Norfolk colouring competition. 

There will be activities on the day and Hunstanton Heritage Centre will be linking its official opening that Friday with the campaign. The Norwich pipe band is set to parade around the coastal town for a noon opening and the centre will then be open to the public on Saturday, February 15 with free admission from noon to 3pm.

There will be free entry to Lynn’s True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum in North Street on Friday from 10am to 1pm, the bells will be ringing at St Edmund’s Church in Downham Market from 7pm and the day will see a host of activities online when it is also hoped people will take to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to share photographs and say what they love about the area.

People have been asked to add Love West Norfolk to their email footer and add a Love West Norfolk image on their social media accounts.

Anyone wanting to take part in the day and use some of the materials produced can download the resources pack at www.lovewestnorfolk.co.uk

Special Love West Norfolk badges can also be collected from the  borough council offices in Lynn’s Chapel Street.
