Villagers hope a mass yard sale this weekend will help an appeal to buy new play equipment reach its target.
People in Sculthorpe, near Fakenham, will be clearing out their attics, spare bedrooms and garden sheds on Saturday, selling unwanted items to raise funds.
Parish councillor Jonathan Stroulger said: 'We've managed to raise £32,400 so we've got £1,300 left to raise.
'We've got this event and a quiz afterwards, so hopefully by the time we've had those we'll be there.'
Mr Stroulger said a similar sale held last year raised £400 for the play equipment.

'This one is quite a lot bigger,' he added. 'Last time, we had 20 stalls, this time, we've already got 30.
'They're dotted all around the village, which is a triangle so it's quite easy to get around.'

Children living in Sculthorpe took part in a survey to decide what equipment the village should buy to replace its aging playground.
'There's going to be a zip wire, a basket swing, a big climbing structure and a log climb,' said Mr Stroulger. 'There's also going to be some proper swings.'
The sale runs from 9am - 12-noon on Saturday. Free parking and maps will be available at the parish church, while teas, coffees, cakes and bacon rolls will be served at the village hall.
