Local causes benefit from Scole summer fete

A number of local charitable organisations will benefit from a day of summer fun held in Scole at the weekend.

The village, near Diss, hosted its annual Summer Fete on yesterday afternoon which will help raise money for causes such as the East Anglian Air Ambulance, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), Diss First Responders and more than 10 community groups.

Dozens of families flocked to the playing fields, off Ransome Avenue, where they were greeted with stalls, traditional games, miniature train rides, bouncy castles and a barbecue.

Visitors could also watch a girls' football tournament, browse a collection of vintage cars and enjoy displays in a main arena, including belly dancing and line dancing demonstrations.

This year's fete also asked for people to arrive wearing their best hats resulting in a few eye-catching head pieces springing up among the crowd.

Linda Clay, who organised the event alongside fellow resident Robert Ludkin, said: 'People are walking around with smiles on their faces and that's the main thing for us. We wanted to a variety of things for everybody, for adults and children, and I think we've managed to do that.'
