The 37th Raveningham Country Fair was hailed a success as records tumbled during 12 hours of fun yesterday (Saturday).

Dogs and ducks took centre stage alongside steam engines, classic vehicles and vintage machinery at the traditional threshing fair at Raveningham,

The popular fair, which is held in a field off the B1136 between Loddon and Haddiscoe, has taken place every year since 1976 as it raises funds for local charities and good causes.

With the visitors enjoying the sunshine once more this year, they were treated to terrier racing, a puppy dog show, classic cars, working horses, birds of prey and sheepdog displays as well as live music.

There was something for all the family to enjoy, with a wide-range of attractions that also included more than 70 craft stalls – with many run by local charities – model plane displays, circus skills, dance displays, donkey rides, food and refreshment tents,

Pleased with how the event had gone, committee member Roy Russell said: “We think it has been a great success. We’ve already had lots of positive feedback and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere at a friendly, local fair.”
