That’s Entertainment, by Andy Tyler, September 15, 2017

Once again, even with indifferent weather, King’s Lynn was buzzing last weekend with all the excitement of Heritage Open Day. Attendance seemed to be well up and everyone appeared to be having a great time and enjoying themselves! I was stationed at The Studio of Andrew Schumann over the lunch period and enjoyed supporting him and learning about, and viewing, his work. Many visitors had the same experience. It was impossible to miss the fantastic Classic Car Display in The Tuesday Market Place and we were all spoilt for choice in deciding what to visit. To Alison Gifford, The King’s Lynn Civic Society, Borough Council and all organisations and volunteers involved, heartfelt thanks!

Vital for West Norfolk businesses need to listen to their customers

It’s good to talk, was my headline last month. Equally important though is the need to listen. If we’re not hearing what our customers – and potential customers – actually want, we’re doomed.
