With the exciting launch of, Norfolk Talks last week, I was invited to chat to Stephen Bumfrey of BBC Radio Norfolk about thefine East Anglian people we have set to be a part of the series.

During Covid-19, the EDP has been very loyal and supportive of local business. Of course, locality of the news is important to the newspaper.


I received the news of being a Drapers Footwear Awards finalist during the height of lockdown, and The EDP Newspaper were keen to publicise this news to their readership.


The link can be found below. Happy reading!

Last Sunday was a great occasion coming together for the annual EDP/Archant, Dunston Hall Wedding Show.


The event always sees a fantastic footfall of bride and grooms to be along with their family and friends. This year's show felt particularly smooth and relaxed with both the suppliers and visitors enjoying the extensive range of services on offer.


Wew look forward to seeing you at the two day, Showground event in February!

I have posted about this previously, but last week was the actual event. Women across Norfolk had been chosen by the public and then an esteemed panel of judges and The Edp to become one of Norfolk's top 100 Most Inspiring Women.


It was a truly inspiring day, as you can imagine with some very talented and clever women (excluding my self)! I was placed on a table with women who included the UK's first female firefighter, high profile stylist, Chrissi Rix, head teacher of Norwich School for Girls, Kirsty Von Malaise and others.


Wine was poured and food was readily consumed in the stunning venue of Brasted's. Delightful chatter and a few tears shed as women came together.


Thank you to Sophie Stainthorpe, The EDP's head of content for initially nominating me!


The 100 Most Inspiring Norfolk Women newspaper articles can be googled.

It was a very surreal surprise to open my email the other day to discover that I had been nominated and put forward as one of Norfolk's 100 Most inspiring Women! To be nominated is one thing, but to be chosen among many inspiring women in my opinion is another, Thank you for believing in the causes that I continue to fight for. https://www.edp24.co.uk/features/100-most-inspiring-women-in-norfolk-1-6294621
