A campaign to find 'vocal locals' keen to get involved in local decision-making will be coming to Norwich next month.
Set up by the Norfolk County Strategic Partnership, the How to be a Vocal Local campaign, which kicks off today at the Royal Norfolk Show, aims to show how easy it is for people to have their say, and highlight how those who care about their communities are making things happen and making a difference.
From July 13 a mobile recording studio disguised as a traditional black cab will visit each corner of the county including Norwich and Great Yarmouth to encourage people to have their say on issues which affect their area.
People will be asked to give their opinion on important local issues, such as fire and rescue services, local libraries and opening hours for local shops.

A website has also been set up to give people ideas on the different ways to get involved, from working with neighbours on a local issue, or joining a community group, to giving feedback to councils, police or the local NHS.
A radio advertising campaign will run from June 28 to late September.
