A shop window of organisations and services in North Walsham is to be held in the town again this spring.
The Big Bash will be happening at the town’s Community Centre, in New Road, on Saturday, April 20 from 1.30pm to 4pm.
It will feature scores of stalls showcasing the many things there are to do in the town from leisure activities and hobbies to care groups and advice sources.

The popular event has been held twice before in the centre since 2019, with another staged online in 2021 due to Covid restrictions. The last one in 2022 had 38 stands which were visited by 220 people.
It is organised by the North Walsham Community Network which was set up in 2017 to improve the quality of life for people in the town and surrounding villages.
A spokesperson said: “This popular event introduces people of all ages to organisations and services that are the lifeblood of the community.
“You are invited to come along and discover what is going on in the town – and meet the people who make it happen.
“They will explain what is on offer and open doors to things you might like to try. It is a friendly, fun and free event (with refreshments available), where you can browse, chat, and have your say about local services and what you want from them.”
The Big Bash highlights leisure, sport and lifestyle activities; arts, craft, music and other hobbies; mental health and social care; sources of information, advice and support; transport, the environment and lots of volunteering opportunities. Transport to the Big Bash, should you need it, can be provided by North Norfolk Community Transport (call 01692 500840).
A coffee morning promoting the event will be held at the St Benet’s Hall on Thursday February 22 (9.30am-noon).
