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.

Mrs Atkinson said Sunday’s event had been a success.

She said: “It has gone really well and we’ve picked up a few things that we can build on next time.”

Mrs Atkinson, who runs a business called Britain Does Vintage organising vintage fairs across the country, said she hoped to hold another baby fair in Norwich next spring.

She said: “I’m using my events knowledge and experience and trialling it in this industry.”
