Children, families and dozens of dogs descended on the north Norfolk village of Weybourne on Sunday, for a traditional British fete boasting attractions ranging from ferret racing, live music and wartime re-enactments, to children's rides, crafts stalls, locally-produced food stands and a vintage car display.
Now in its tenth year, the North Norfolk Country Fair, which is organised by an army of volunteers, regularly attracts up to 3,000 people, raising thousands for the village Community Fund.
Set up more than 20 years ago, the charity has raised more than £100,000 for local good causes, with past beneficiaries ranging from Weybourne bowls, table tennis and Good Companions clubs, to the village hall, All Saints Church and Weybourne Horticultural Society.
The fund also pays for social events for residents, including a summer barbecue, an Easter egg hunt and an over 60s Christmas lunch.
