Cromer Carnival couldn’t function without its army of volunteers. This week we talk to bucket collector and committee member Irene Couse.



Since moving to the town nearly 50 years ago, Irene has fostered around 60 children.

Although she has now retired, Mrs Couse, 75, is still bucket collecting in memory of her foster daughter Rebecca, who died aged 33 two-and-a-half years ago after contracting pneumonia.

Rebecca, who lived at Clifton Park with Mrs Couse, spent five years volunteering for the carnival and was well known for her distinctive pink bucket.
