All things lemon was the order of the day at a community centre in Wymondham as a celebration of the colour, taste and fruit was held.

Today the town's annual Lemon Day was held at North Wymondham Community Centre to coincide with and to help boost its indoor market.

To help promote the event and market a distinctive yellow 2CV Citron called Tipsy Lily was parked up outside the building in Lime Tree Avenue.

The car belonged to Brian and Sylvia Bishop, from Hethersett, and it was the third time the colourful vehicle had been the mascot for Lemon Day.

The centre has been holding an indoor market since late summer as a way of getting the community more involved with the building.

Norman Illsley, member of the centre's committee, said that about 100 people had attended the market, the most in its short history.

Other events on Lemon Day included a free children's lemon trail in the abbey and free raffles run by several of the town centre shops, of which some had decorated windows to reflect the theme.
