    The “200 Things About Norwich” series is very well done and much appreciated by me and by many other Norwich graduates that I have come in contact with in recent years. Quite often during our various Norwich gatherings, we talk about the many fine “posts” made in this series. I am delighted that it will continue with things this time.
