A coastal community is gearing up for a bumper day of fun and games this weekend to raise funds for village causes.

The Overstrand Fair, organised by Overstrand Together, will be held on the village sports ground on Saturday August 2 between 11am-5pm.

It will be officially opened at noon by the Cromer Pier Show cast, including comedian Paul Eastwood and impressionist Adam Daye.

Norfolk step dancer Fiona Davies will be performing and teaching the traditional skill.

There is plenty of entertainment for children, including games, but there will also be an adult tug or war competition in order to win 36 pints of Woodfordes Royal Norfolk.

Visitors will be able to enjoy about 50 craft stalls selling items including local crafts, handmade cards and pottery, pickles and preserves, and handmade bags and cushions.

Members of the North Norfolk Classic Vehicle Club will be showing off vintage vehicles including Rolls Royce and Jaguars.

There will also be games for everyone including roll a coin, horse racing, wet sponge in the stocks, bowl for a pig and a coconut shy.

Also attending is the Poppyland Brewery from Cromer, which started two years ago.
