Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), today attended the charity’s celebration of its new Norfolk hospice, The Nook. The royal visit came after a five-year public appeal to raise £10 million, exactly two years since the first ‘turf cutting’ at the site and just over a month since EACH welcomed the first child through the doors to receive care. The Duchess toured the facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool and state-of-the-art sensory room, meeting children and their families along the way. She also made a short speech to some 300 invited guests before being joined by some of the children to unveil a plaque and formally open the purpose-built hospice in Framingham Earl, around five miles south of Norwich.

North Norfolk District Council’s Chairman has invited Norfolk Wildlife Trust to be his Charity of the Year, with money raised supporting conservation grazing and family learning.

Conservation grazing with native breed cattle, sheep and ponies protects important areas for wildlife. Without regular grazing, many of our rare and fragile habitats and the species they support would be at risk of being…
