GALLERY: Salhouse village fete
There was something for everyone at the Salhouse village fete including a special visit from a couple of Wombles and a special aerial flypast.
Hundreds of people enjoyed the second annual village fete which was brought back by popular demand last year after being included in the parish plan.
Activities included a dog agility event, five-a-side football and the day ended with a special flypast from a Spitfire plane. There was also food stalls and a bouncy castle.
Children were also kept entertained by a special visit from two Wombles, Orinoco, and Uncle Bulgaria.
Robert Cooper, chairman of the village fete committee, said the aim was to have an event which the whole community could get behind.
'It's been a really good atmosphere and most of the village groups are here taking part,' he said.
'When we did our parish plan, one of the things people wanted to see was a village fete.

'There's something for everybody and I think that it's good that we all get together and have a chat.
He said that money raised at this year's fete would be split equally towards the village play area and a project for new toilets and a kitchen at the village church.
Rev Lorna Allies, vicar of Rackheath with Salhouse churches, said: 'It's a 14th century church, but we want the whole village to be able to use it. It has been great here today, and we have brought the children's church out here today.'
