Norfolk County Council has launched a fund to help residents to come together to mark a number of major events taking place during 2012. The council is making a pot of £30,000 available for the ‘Norfolk Year of Celebrations 2012 Fund’, which community groups or organisations and town and parish councils can bid for a maximum of £500 from, to help mark the following sporting and cultural occasions:
- the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Weekend (June 2 to 5).
- the Olympic Torch being run through Norfolk as part of the London 2012 Torch Relay (July 4 and 5).
- the Paralympic Torch Festival (August 28 and 29).
- the final weekend of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad (September 8 and 9).
- the planned return of the Tour of Britain cycle race (date to be confirmed in September).
The fund will help support costs associated directly with staging and promoting the event or activity, with Norfolk County Council looking for events and activities that are community focussed, accessible and open to everyone, which engage volunteers and leave a positive legacy.
The council are especially looking for activities that are new and add value to existing activity.
To help those interested in submitting an application for funding, Norfolk County Council has also produced an Event Planner. The event planner covers the first steps to take when beginning to plan an event, followed by a timeline of things to do as the event date draws closer. Further useful guidance found within the handbook ranges from accessing funding, to organising road closures and licences, through to undertaking risk assessments and marketing an event. Finally, the handbook stresses the importance of effectively evaluating an event in order to help with future planning.
Both the application form for funding from ‘Norfolk’s Year of Celebrations 2012 Fund’ and the Event Planner can be downloaded by visiting www.norfolk.gov.uk/events2012
The deadline for the first round of funding for ‘Norfolk’s Year of Celebrations 2012 Fund’ is Friday February 24, with the closing date for the second round on Friday April 27.

Children across Norfolk are being given the chance to take part in an Olympics inspired competition that could see their work displayed at a city art gallery.
Norfolk County Council is organising the London 2012 art competition, which will see winning works displayed at Norwich’s Castle Museum.
The competition is open to all children and young people in the county and those successful in each category will also win an artist for a day, who will visit their school. Selected pieces will also be displayed in the county’s mobile libraries.
There are three categories, broken down into each school key stage. They are:
* Works that represents one of the Olympic and Paralympic values (excellence, friendship, respect, courage, determination, quality and inspiration).
* Works that represent an Olympian or Paralympian, past or present.
* Works on the theme of the Olympic torch relay, which is scheduled to pass through Norfolk.
Children and young people can enter art in any media, as long as it is two-dimensional and in A4, A3 or A2.
The competition closes on Friday 22 March 2012 and judging will be done by staff from Norfolk County Council’s Children’s and Community Services departments and Joseph Ballard from the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games.
The winners in each category will have their work displayed at the Castle’s Art Gallery in the summer term, ahead of the opening of the London Olympics.
Alison Thomas, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services at Norfolk County Council, said: “This competition gives children and young people across the county the opportunity to have their work displayed in a public art gallery, meaning they will be seen by visitors from across the county, country and even overseas. It also gives schools and their pupils a chance to capture the spirit of the Games, think about its history, its purpose and the significance of having such a high profile event in their home nation.
“We are keen for schools to use the many educational opportunities the Olympic and Paralympic Games present across the curriculum, whether it is sport, art, maths, English or citizenship. The values of the Games are attributes we should all aspire to and qualities that we want to see in all of Norfolk’s children and young people. We hope that schools will embrace this competition and would urge as many young people as possible to take part.”

A show about the population of Norfolk… starring the population of Norfolk. And you could be part of it!
We’re on the hunt for 100 men, women and children from across Norfolk to take part in performances of 100% Norfolk during the 2012 Norfolk & Norwich Festival. But we’re not looking for just any 100 people.
Together, they need to be as representative of the county’s total population of 862,000 as possible. So, with 51% of the county’s population being female, we need to find 51 women and girls to take part. Other criteria will include age, location and place of birth, so by the time we’ve found our cast of 100, it will accurately represent the make-up of the entire population of Norfolk.
As well as individuals, we are also interested in groups or clubs taking part together. It will be a great opportunity for you to share your particular interest or skill and don’t worry you do not need to have experience of being on stage either.
The 100% Norfolk cast will then come together to create a unique show, combining personal stories and revealing insights into what it’s like to live in Norfolk in 2012. A must for anyone who loves the place they call home, 100% Norfolk will be an illuminating and uplifting celebration of our county and our people.
If you or your group are interested in taking part or if you would like anymore information then please contact email@example.com or 01603 8777765
