Summer Fair 2019
After our successful inaugural CPRE Norfolk Summer Fair at the wonderful Wolterton Park in 2017, we are thrilled to announce that we will be holding an even bigger and better event this year on ***Sunday 28th July*** in the grounds of the beautiful Raveningham Estate, at the generous invitation of Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon.
