A grand reopening celebrated the refurbishment of a village hall.
West Norfolk mayor Nick Daubney cut the ribbon, as North Wootton's community venue re-opened.
He was joined by villager Mary Cook, who was born in 1936 - a year before the hall was built.
The day was attended by many villagers, along with businesses who have supported the village hall and members of its management committee.
Fenland Ukuleles provided musical entertainment, while vitiros enjoyed refreshments and saw the new, insulated and lowered ceiling with improved lighting, renovated toilets, brand new kitchen, new heating system and redecoration.
