All About Dogs
Prepare for a paw-some day! We all love our four-legged friends and what better way to celebrate man’s best friend than with a two-day extravaganza event. Everyone is welcome whether you have a dog to bring or not. There will be fun dog shows, arena events, have-a-go activities, competitions, advice, shopping opportunities to spoil your pooch and much, much more.Find out more here.
World Crabbing Competition
Way back in May, the Crab and Lobster Festival took over Sheringham and Cromer for a weekend of seafood celebrations. This Sunday it is back with the World Crabbing Competition and Art Trail Auction. Compete as a team or individual to catch the most crabs or the biggest crab. Afterwards, wander the market stalls and bid for your favourite handcrafted seafaring art pieces.Find out more here.
"Thank you so much for your help in the marketing and selling of both our properties. We choose Sowerbyâ€™s due to their staff. They seem to be a different brand of estate agent, helpful and courteous and very understanding. We have experienced both sides of the housing market with one sale that could not have been smoother and completed within six weeks and another that fell through twice, (third time lucky!) and that seemed fraught with difficulties right until the last moment! This is when the agents earn their fee. I am afraid at times I required a great deal of hand holding and found the whole process overwhelming at times, but with all your help we got there!! A huge thank you to all the team, we are now living in our dream home!"
