A warm welcome to the Norfolk Winter blog, a website with lofty ambitions to become your one-stop shop for all things wintry in Norfolk.
‘Hope for the best, prepare for the worst’ isn’t a bad motto when winter is approaching, and this blog will be highlighting some of the ways you can make the most of Norfolk during the winter while also arming you with information so we can all cope better when temperatures plunge, ice forms and snow falls.
The blog is part of a bigger Norfolk Winter campaign designed to make it easy for you to find the information you need to stay healthy, happy and safe this winter.
It’s shiny and new now but over the coming months we’ll be regularly updating the blog with stories, news, interviews and advice from a range of contributors including local councils, health services and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.
You can also stay up-to-date with winter information on Twitter and Facebook, where you’ll find daily gritting updates and news on any disruptions or closures in the event of wintry weather amongst other things.
There’s also a very lovely Norfolk Winter Flickr group where we’d love you to share your best photos of Norfolk during the winter months, or you can just browse through the fine selection of snaps there already.
And there are yet more ways you can join in. We’re welcoming your tweets (tag ‘em with #norfolkwinter please), comments and suggestions on Facebook, Twitter and this very blog to make the campaign as useful as it possibly can be.
When it comes down to it, it’s just a new and rather simple way we can all help to look after each other.
Oh, and November isn’t really winter of course – but if we didn’t launch this now, you wouldn’t be prepared when it does arrive!
