At the Old Church Hall in Trowse, the CreateNorwich team are going to be hosting a monthly live music session. Last Saturday of each month. Pencil it in your diaries and as soon as details for the next gig are available I’ll post them here..
Lots of people over the years have asked if they could advertise on the site, and kept offering to pay for me to do it. Well, trowse.org has been running now for about 10 years and I’ve finally given in!
I’ll be setting up a free page for local services to list them, and charge for a front-page add (and additional page if you want one).
If you are a local company, tradesman, charity or tradesman or have something you would like to offer – do get in touch.

Cover it up, knock it down, clad it with something that lifts people’s spirits as they are stuck in the traffic queue outside it every morning. Anyway, for the first time I looked at the Hall (at night) and thought to myself “That’s better!”. Have a look at some photos.. [Read more…]
Whilst pondering on what makes Trowse a special place, I came across some old photos from about ten years ago.I quick whizz through made me realise the things that make the place so special are its people, sense of community, and how the whole design of Trowse facilitates a greater sense of community than any other place I know of in Norfolk. It’s great to have the school at the heart of the village, along with the common and swings, closely followed by the pub and shop! [Read more…]
