Ample parking is at Tesco on Cromwell Road for visitors to take the Norfolk Green 66 circular or X1 bus into town.

The park and ride bus will not be at Morrisons this year.

A spokesmen for the event said: “St Peter and St Paul’s Church is now in its final preparations for this year’s event, the flowers are ordered, the flower arrangers are waiting to start the mammoth task of turning exotic and locally grown flowers into yet another stunning sight.

“The meals for the Rose Café and refreshments in the church hall are planned, food ordered, the outside stalls are all but sold out for the four days. “You can imagine all the hard work that goes into this and they are all volunteers, giving their time and effort willingly.
