Churches from across the city came together to organise the event at Heigham Park on Monday, May 6, to raise money for the May Day Fund which is shared between local charities.

Visitors had the chance to enjoy fairground and donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows, and dance performances alongside the usual fete stalls and games.

The fair, which was open from 11am to 4pm, has been held by the city's churches every year since 1986 to raise money for various good causes.

This year, they have been joined by Chapel Field Road Methodist Church.
