The Norfolk Longbook:

Will be taking centre stage this year as we make it grow before your very eyes. With contributions from participating schools the ever growing concertina style book is made up of art, poetry and stories as told by people who live in, or are inspired by the beautiful county of Norfolk. 

We need you too! Why not make a contribution, bring it with you or just come along and take a look, we will have the right size paper and lots of inspiration on hand to enable YOU to be part of this community project.
