Crowds gather at The Walks to help raise charity cash

Strongman Adrian Smith really got the bit between his teeth and helped pull in the crowds for King's Lynn Lions' annual fun day in the towns Walks.

The three-times UK champion strongman was just one of the attractions on Sunday when the Lions held their first rain-free event for three years.

Mr Smith used his teeth to lift a woman on a chair and took part in various demonstrations, including a tug-of-war against groups of children during the charity fundraising event.

The fun day also featured a dog show for the first time and 75 dogs of all shapes and sizes arrived to take part in a variety of classes. The best in show was awarded to a seven-year-old Samoyed called Buffy owned by Mrs Amanda Mann, of Raby Avenue, North Lynn.

Owners were also able to take tips from the Lowestoft Dog Agility demonstration team who took part in the arena events to help keep the crowds entertained.

'It was very successful day all round. We always hold it on the first Sunday in June and for the last two years have been rained on, but this year stayed dry and was lovely,' said Lions member Peter Dixon.

'We always ask other local charities to come along so they can use the day to raise money for themselves while being part of a larger event. It has been running for 13 years and has proved successful for everyone,' he added.

Members of the Lions are already beginning work to plan next year's event.
