We had really hard winters in the middle of the last century, and many of our Voices remember skating on the Broad - and regret that the recent run of mild winters mean that skating is a thing of the past.

​

One of the Voices talks about bringing home their first Christmas turkey - which was still alive!

​

Another lovely memory of a purely Norfolk tradition teaches us about Jack Valentine’s Night on 14th February, with its strange rituals!
