Participants in the Stalham Wherry Trail, which asked people to find decorated wherries around the town, came up with some very innovative designs, and the winners were announced at the town hall.

The trail ran from the Spring bank holiday to the August bank holiday and people were asked to vote for the best design and best named.

One of the five organisers, Ray Woolston said: 'It was a success with more than 90 people including some beavers taking part. The winner was very well painted and there were also some quite different ones, not just painted ones. The Flower Moments' one was nice - that was called dragonfly.'

It was such a success that it might be held again next year with, potentially, different organisers.

The winner for best design was Museum of the Broads while the winner for best named was Bryan Wherry & Wroxham Music by Katie Newman.
