Buy Local Norfolk will be at the Norwich Lord Mayors Procession on 8th July 2017. We have very kindly been donated a lorry by the fabulous people at Freightforce on Guardian Road in Norwich.
Over the past few months a sub committee of dedicated Buy Local Norfolk members have been working behind the scenes to plan our amazing float. Our theme this year is “The Monster of the Norfolk Broads”, we have arranged with two local schools, Sparhawk Infant School and Freethorpe School for the children to create a variety of insects and creepy crawlies to decorate our float, and Spas Unlimited have kindly provided a hot tub as a home to our fabulous “monster Dan” who will be entertaining us all on the day.
How can we get involved, I hear you cry!
Well, there is two ways, we are having a 44ft long banner going along both sides of the lorry, with a selection of themed advertising spaces available to be sponsored by Buy Local Norfolk members. Get in early to choose which themed space you would prefer for your logo. The cost of this is £60.00. The banners will not only be used for the Lord Mayor’s Procession, but at the Royal Norfolk Show, and at the many events that Buy Local Norfolk will attend over the summer. Please drop Julie an email for more details.
WE NEED YOU!
Yes, we need you physically on 8th July to come along and be part of our fabulous float, we ask that everyone dresses in appropriate fancy dress (explorers, monsters, insects and creepy crawlies). The float will leave Newmarket Road at 5pm on the day, and we will need everyone on the float before that time, more details on our stand number and exact timings will follow, but please drop Julie an email so we have an idea of numbers for the day. If you have never seen the Lord Mayor’s Procession from a float, it’s a great experience and a fun afternoon/early evening for all the family.
Members children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
