A south Norfolk market town will be turned into a bright yellow hub when Wymondham Lemon Day is held on Saturday.
The mayor of Wymondham, Cllr Robert Savage and the Chairman of South Norfolk District Council, Cllr Bob McClenning, will arrive at the town’s Market Cross on a brand new, balloon-filled, double decker bus, one of five recently brought into service by operator Konectbus.
The civic guests will be greeted by the Encore Singers and Wymondham’s Cadet groups (Army, Air and Fire), after which the official signal will be given for the Lemon Day activities to commence.
Organisations represented on the Market Place will include the Royal Air Force Association, who will be offering samples of their Lemon RAFA cake (donated by the Egg Shed at Cavick Farm), Dogs Trust, Wymondham Rotary Club and the Wymondham Helicopter Group, raising funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
A variety of activities will then take place in a number of locations around the town, including Wymondham Arts Centre, Ogden Court, Abbey Hall, Fairland Hall, Central Hall, the library and Kings Head Meadow.
Shops and office workers will be taking part by wearing a yellow buttonhole and the cafes in the town will have special themed menus.
A spokesman for the organisers said: “We are delighted with the response to the event, which aims to bring together all sections of the community, under a common theme.”
All of the activities will take place between 10am and midday, except the Rotary Club Bazaar, which will continue until 12.30pm.
