All Things Norfolk was founded by Simon Chapman who is supported by a great team whose vision is
- To help preserve the character of Norfolk towns by encouraging customers to use independent Norfolk businesses as much as possible.
- To retain local spending power in the local economy.
- To encourage people to visit Norfolk and once here to support local independent businesses during their visit.
- To promote and support all the wonderful activities and fundraising that takes place in Norfolk
Simon has vast experience in Publishing and Customer Service, as well as the ups and downs of supporting the Canaries! Some of the titles Simon has published through his family Publishing House, Grice Chapman, have included Taking the Norfolk Air (BBC Radio Norfolk’s 25th anniversary book), Softly Wakes the Dawn by Hugh Brandon-Cox and Waller’s World.
All Things Norfolk has grown beyond recognition since its early days and its success and rapid growth has been based through word of mouth rather than expensive advertising campaigns. Don't just take our word for it but please click here to read some of the reviews from the businesses we showcase.
We have grown our business by providing an excellent level of customer service to our business members whilst also ensuring we provide them with an unrivalled package of benefits. We wanted to ensure that all types of local businesses have the opportunity to have a cost effective platform to promote their business. We feel we have a platform that is extremely user friendly and is a one stop place for those who love Norfolk as it incorporates a directory, online shop, events, competitions, special offers and articles.
All Things Norfolk has supported many local community projects / fundraising events since its launch including The Wymondham Music Festival, The Cromer and Sheringham Arts Festival, Break Charity, The North Walsham Rotary Club Santa Sleigh, Maddermarket Theatre and the Festival of Architecture in Norwich and Norfolk.
A special mention has to be made to Alan Todd who works tirelessly in the background to turn ideas into reality and we have many more to keep him busy over the forthcoming months.
