A soap box derby, morris dancing, a scarecrow competition, vintage cars, bouncy castles and Punch and Judy were amongst the activities enjoyed by hundreds of people at the Gressenhall Grand Fete, near Dereham.

A new committee was formed in 2012, the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, to breathe new life into the annual village fun day.

It was estimated that about 800 people attended the fete on Saturday, which was followed by live music in the evening.

Gressenhall Grand Fete Committee member Molly Crisp said: “The fete has just built up an great reputation and the whole village comes out to support it.

“We are very grateful to lots of people who work hard to make this what it is, particularly the Bunnings family, who do an awful lot.”

Many groups and charities ran stalls on the day to raise money for themselves including Gressenhall Play Group, a team from Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, Dereham Meeting Point, Breckland Care at Home and the RNLI.
