NCW is delighted to partner with FCC Environment to celebrate active citizenship, renewable energy and the positive spirit of young people across Norfolk and Suffolk through a region-wide book giveaway.

To mark the legacy of the competition, we have commissioned a poem from Mathilda Armiger, one of our 2020 Young Norfolk Laureates who went to Paston College school. Read her beautiful poem below.

Mathilda Armiger is an 18 year old writer based in Norwich and Paris. She was a Foyles Young Poet in 2018, 1st place in the University of Hertfordshire’s 2019 poetry competition, and is currently one of the Young Norfolk Poet Laureates for the National Centre of Writing.
