Every month we’ll be featuring a much loved part of Norfolk which owes its continued existence to the independent business and organisations which are devoted to encouraging and serving customers. This month, and with the recent sad loss of one of our most famous local residents, we are focusing on Cromer and will bring you news of local events and what’s on offer in the area. When you think of Cromer do your thoughts turn to piers, crabs, Poppyland, lighthouses and lifeboats? Obviously the answer’s yes, but there’s so much more to this delightful Victorian seaside town which was recently adopted as the home of one of Britain’s most popular and sadly recently departed thespians, Sir John Hurt.
