You might think being a mayor is just about wearing a chain and chairing council meetings, but think again.
North Walsham Mayor Barry Hester is proving to be an action man having chosen the Friends as his civic charity this year.

He said: “I am also a trustee for North Walsham Play which is raising funds for play equipment, who are also running a stall. So I thought @if I am going to be up at that time I might as well run a tombola for the Friends too!”
A collection at his civic service has already netted more than £350 for the Friends, and we are grateful for all the events that will boost that figure this year.
Thanks Barry and if people are out and about on Sunday morning do drop into the sale and buy a tombola ticket.
