PICTURE GALLERY: Carnival fun on Abbey estate in Thetford
Community spirit was in full flow as the Abbey estate in Thetford staged its second carnival.
Among the highlights of the day on Friday was a colourful procession - led by the Norwich Road Samba Band - from the Bishop's Primary School around the estate.
There was a theme of literary genre for costumes and staff and pupils let their imaginations run riot as they picked a wide variety of themes from Robin Hood to Noah's Ark to Greek legends to native American Indians.
'It was a lovely day and such a positive atmosphere,' said Bishop's headteacher Clare Cook.
'The weather was great and people came out of their houses to watch the procession.'
