Photo Gallery: Rudhams Festival success

Festival showcases the best of village life

Villagers in Rudham had their own three day festival over the weekend with a variety of attractions and entertainment.

Events were held on the playing field while East Rudham's parish church, St Peter's, displayed a flower festival on Saturday and Sunday.

The weekend kicked-off with a Rudham's Got Talent contest on Friday evening while Saturday was packed with events ranging from a tradtional village fete to a children's show jumping tournament, swing band and sheep racing.

Residents and visitors also enjoyed a horticultural show at Grove Farm and there was live music on Saturday night.
