The Aldiss Store in Fakenham has been completely decorated with Norfolk coloured balloons and bunting to celebrate the first ever Norfolk day.

Darryl Simpson, managing director of the store, said: “We saw the publicity around the first ever Norfolk day and as a business that has been in Norfolk since 1892 we thought we would do our bit to support it.

“Hopefully this will be something we can throughout the years and not just this year.”

The store is also offering a special Norfolk menu using a lot of local produce and staff are wearing t-shirts with local sayings famous to the county, such as ‘bootiful’.

Mr Simpson added: “We have teamed up with the local gin companies whose gin we sell to offer tasters to customers. It’s great that we can join in with celebrating our county.”
