Crowds flock to New Buckenham village fete

Crowds flocked to New Buckenham's traditional bank holiday fete in the market place on Monday.

People of all ages were entertained by numerous stalls including competitions, bowling for a pig, coconut shies, roll-a-penny and raffles.

Children were kept amused by swing boats, a merry-go-round, a bouncy castle and free Punch and Judy shows.

The book, bric-a-brac, plant and jumble stalls were kept busy and ice creams and locally made burgers were on sale.

Organiser Clive Rush said: 'Every year people come from far and wide because it's such a traditional village fete and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We have more than 80 helpers on the day and we couldn't do it without them.'
