Chairman of Breckland Council, Richard Duffield, hosted the event and raised hundreds of pounds for The Big C.

Held at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum, near Dereham, a number of local dignitaries attended and, through a raffle held on the evening, raised more than £700.

Mr Duffield said: “The Big C is a fantastic organisation, leading Norfolk’s fight against cancer and supporting local patients when they need it most. Sadly we all know a family member or friend who has been affected by this terrible disease, so I hope today goes some way in helping raise awareness and offer comfort to those in need.”

At the event the High Sheriff of Norfolk presented long service certificates to a number of Breckland Council members, to recognise their contribution to the Breckland community. The councillors had each served on the council for at least 20 years, with a total of 340 years’ service between them.
