Special bus tour on Dereham Day thanks to Orbit Homes

Visitors to this year’s Dereham Day will have the chance to take a special trip around the area’s most popular features thanks to a free sightseeing bus tour in partnership with affordable housebuilder, Orbit Homes.

Those attending the Dereham Day celebration on Saturday May 11, can take in the market town’s most iconic sights, including Dereham Windmill, by hopping on the vintage double decker bus from the car park of The Original Factory Shop on Matsell Road. Buses will run every half an hour, starting at 11.15am. The bus belongs to the 2383 Preservation Group.

Andy Georgiou, Sales and Marketing Director at Orbit Homes, commented: “At Orbit Homes we take pride in supporting the communities in which we build. Dereham Day is a fantastic local celebration so we are delighted to offer our support. We’re very fortunate to have Dereham Windmill overlooking our Mill View development and we can’t wait to join local residents in enjoying all that the bus tour and wider celebrations have to offer.”

Started in 2022, Dereham Day is returning for its third outing and this year’s bus tour is joined by activities for everyone at Dereham Memorial Hall, Fleece Meadow and all across town.

Tim Cara, Chair of Dereham Day organisers Friends of Dereham Memorial Hall, added: “It's wonderful that Orbit Homes has announced its presence by sponsoring Dereham Day, when all parts of the community come together to celebrate why Dereham is such a great place to live and work. We hope it's the start of a long and happy association. An involvement like this gives everyone so much confidence that a major developer like Orbit Homes has the interests of the town at its heart.”
