Edge-of-Norwich village gears up for Olympic-related fun

A village on the outskirts of Norwich is gearing up for a weekend of Olympic-related fun.

Hethersett Open Weekend 2012 will be held from June 22 to 24.

Over the three days there will be a flower festival, 24 hour swimming marathon, a brass band concert, a women's five-a-side football tournament and an Olympic-themed church service.

People will also get the chance to take part in up to 20 different Olympic sports as part of 'Sport in the Park' on the memorial playing field on the Saturday and a two mile fun run on closed village roads on the Sunday.
