Popular teddy bear festival to return to Great Ellingham

The popular Teddy Bear Festival at Great Ellingham, near Attleborough, returns for its seventh year from Saturday and will run until July 21.

The festival starts on the first day with garage sales and the Teddy bears are put on display.

Last year there were 55 garage sales and more than 100 bears to see.

During the festival fortnight there will also be a fashion show, an art exhibition and on July 14 Festival Day with crafts stalls and many children's events.

The event raises thousands of pounds for local charities and community groups every year.
