It’s reunion time for the people of Heartsease

Do you have any memories or photographs of life on Heartsease over the years?

New technology is helping to bring the people of Heartsease together and now a grand reunion is being planned for May.

Chris Brown has been telling me how a group he set up on Facebook called Heartsease Estate, Norwich, now has attracted getting on for 700 members in just a few weeks.

The get-together for people on the estate, those who grew up there or live there now, is taking place on Saturday May 5 at the Heartsease pub starting at 7.30pm.

If you have any photographs or memories of special events on the estate please drop me a line at Prospect House, Rouen Road, Norwich NR1 1RE, or email me at
