Mobility scooter races among ideas for Stalham’s jubilee celebrations
Queen's jubilee revellers in Stalham are set for their own early mini version of this year's London 2012 Paralympics with racing mobility scooters among ideas for June's celebrations.
A jubilee group is finalising the town's plans for the weekend which will feature a big picnic on Stalham Recreation Ground at lunchtime on Sunday June 3, followed by a mini-Olympics.
Suggestions for the sports include races for users of mobility scooters, wheelchairs and strollers, as well as the more conventional tug-of-war, egg-and-spoon and three-legged events for all.
Celebrations will begin on Friday June 1 with a nostalgic evening of DVDs about the area, including the Broads.
There will be an exhibition of local photos in the town hall throughout the jubilee period and on Saturday June 2 the Stone Angels folk group will give a concert in Stalham Parish Church.

Stalham Brass Band will play at the community picnic on Sunday and the afternoon's festivities will finish with a short combined-churches' service on the recreation ground.
Other activities still in the melting pot include a display by the pensioners' association about their memories of King George VI's death and the Queen's accession, a steam day at the Broads Museum, a display of wedding dresses and other fashions from 60 years ago, and a schools' competition to design a card for the Queen.
