Hundreds of proud parents and their little ones have flocked to a Parent and Baby Show in what is hoped will be the first of a series of similar events. Organised by Alex Atkinson of Gresham, near Sheringham, the event at Carrow Road stadium featured crochet workshops, a sensory zone, a story corner and more than 70 vendors of everything from bassinets to baby clothes.
