Crowning the year with a spectacular line-up of speakers

The North Norfolk Coastal Group (facilitation fund) is marking its first full year of operation by announcing an exceptional line-up of speakers and a wide-ranging field of topics for September’s meeting.

The most ambitious event organised by the NNCG so far, takes place on Friday 22 September, starting at 9am. It will be hosted in one of the most prestigious venues in the county – the Museum Courtyard at King Charles’ Norfolk residence, Sandringham.

The event will start promptly at 9.30am with people asked to assemble at 9am, when teas and coffees will be available.
