A boules tournament is once again being organised by the village of St Peter South Elmham to raise funds for the church.

This year's contest will take place on Sunday, July 23, at Ilketshall St Andrews Village Hall.

It is open to all ages and abilities, and all you need is a team of four to take part.

The event lasts all day with games played in leagues in the morning, followed by a knockout competition in the afternoon. Teams will then be vying to win the cup and plate.

Hot drinks and bacon rolls will be available in the morning, with hot dogs, burgers and cakes from lunchtime. People are also welcome to take a picnic and the village hall bar will be open. There will also be a raffle and a playground for the children.

To enter a team, email tim.maycock@btinternet.com or call Tim on 01986 782296 or Pam on 01986 782265.
