Norfolk and Waveney's 30 under 30 - from world-beating athletes to business owners

From sporting stars and YouTube sensations, to savvy business owners and international models, our region is home to some of the most inspirational young people leading the way in their industries.

Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk, the Lady Dannatt, said she was "in awe" at the achievements of the 30 young people on the Eastern Daily Press' list.

"Norfolk is so fortunate to have such a wealth of inspirational and talented young people in every walk of life, drawing on the beauty and culture of this wonderful county of ours," she said. "I stand back in awe at the scale and diversity of their achievements."

Business

Morgan Lewis is a self-taught-baker who had a dream to open her own cake shop and in lockdown that dream came true.  

When she first launched Bakeaholics in Attleborough’s Queen’s Square, she was met with a two-hour queue and so much demand she ran out of stock - a rush which has so far failed to ease. 

Miss Lewis used to take her cakes and bakes around local markets, driving to Wymondham, Mildenhall and Newmarket to drum up trade, working at The Stag, then the Breckland Lodge, for an income. 

Now the 19-year-old has turned a lifelong baking hobby into a thriving 'cakery' business so popular expansion is already on the cards just months since it opened.
