I’ve lived in Norfolk for several years and think it’s a county that’s definitely worth shouting about. With beautiful beaches, a stunning city, the Norfolk Broads and countless pretty villages, I have not once regretted leaving my life in Sydney to come back to my adopted home in the east of England.
One of the real draws of the county is the variety of trails where you can get out into the countryside and discover some of the hidden treasures.
If you haven’t visited Norfolk before, now is the time to head out and explore. Today, Norfolk Trails launches its competition ‘Norfolk Trails’ Treasure’. Those venturing out on the Norfolk Trails this summer are being offered the opportunity to snap a photo and enter it for the chance to win some treasure of their own.
Whether you are out for a stroll, walking the dog, cycling or taking a jog, make sure you take a camera along for the journey so you can capture a coastal sunset on Weavers’ Way, discover an old church on Paston Way or spot some wildlife along the Norfolk Broads.
The competition runs until 30th Sept 2014 and will see judges Brian Hannah, Chairman of Norfolk County Council, Nigel Pickover, Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News Editor and David Yates, Norfolk County Council’s Senior Trails Officer, each pick their top two favourites to go through to the finals.
The six finalists will then see their images go to a public vote for a chance to win treats including £100 to spend at Cotswolds Outdoor and the winning photo made into a canvas print.
Throughout the contest, the Norfolk Trails team will be sharing, re-tweeting and liking entries, as well as uploading them all to the official Norfolk Trails’ Treasure Flickr group.
