Josie Spencer, CEO at NCH&C
I moved to Norfolk following my appointment as CEO of NCH&C, so I’m still exploring this wonderful county and all it has to offer. I’m very lucky because despite being a relative newcomer to Norfolk, I’ve seen quite a bit of it whilst out and about visiting our teams across the county.
My first impression of Norfolk was that it’s a really friendly place. All of the staff at NCH&C and the patients that I have met have been so welcoming and kind. Here’s some of my Norfolk highlights:
The market in Norwich is like nothing I’ve seen before, it really is iconic. A wonderful variety of colourful stalls and so many people have recommended the food stalls to me. I’ve tried a few but there’s lots more to test out!
I’ve been impressed with how much culture there is in Norfolk. Norwich in particular seems to be bubbling with creativity and I can’t wait to visit the Sainsbury’s Centre at the UEA.
What’s not to love about a town with its own lighthouse? I think the beach is a bit of a hidden gem, with great views of the sea.
The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich
I’ve been really impressed with how The Forum acts as a central hub for events in the city – there always seems to be something going on there and as a city newbie this is a great place to find out what’s happening in the city. We’ve had our AGM at The Forum for the past few years and it is a brilliant central Norwich venue.
I really love the extraordinarily beautiful night skies you get in Norfolk. If you’re out on a clear night away from the glare of the city you can see thousands of stars. Apparently Kelling is a particularly great place for star gazing.
