Who doesn’t love looking at amazing photos! Thanks again John Newstead.
What an amazing community event in North Walsham witnessed by inexcess of 3500 people. An amazing selection of food, drink and music topped off by a very impressive Fireworks display. Proceeds from this years event are to be split between North Walsham Play and the Sir Norman Lamb Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund. Thank you also to John Newstead for the great photos and Mark Debbage for the drone footage!

Its very sad to see not one but two of our basket swing seats vandalised within a 3 day period. This has cost North Walsham Play in excess of £1000 to put right after the first seat was damaged. To see the second seat damaged within 24 hours of being installed is heart breaking.
We won’t let this beat us!
We now need to raise some additional funds to look at procuring a more robst seat.
Can you help? https://localgiving.org/appeal/nwpswing/
