The world's largest village store: A look at the history of Roys

With its wide selection of goods, some consider it to be Norfolk's answer to Harrods - but do you remember these moments from Roys' history?
Based in Hoveton, Roys of Wroxham was started by Arnold and Alfred Roy in 1895 and the family business now has a multitude of stores in the village and beyond.
There are currently 12 Roys stores, five of which are in Hoveton and Wroxham, with seven more across Norfolk and Suffolk.
Roys owns the garden centre Highway Garden and Leisure in Hoveton, where it also runs a toy shop and builder's merchant.
The department store has seen a lot in more than 100 years of business, from a 1995 fire in its main Hoveton store, which cost the firm over £5m, to earning the accolade of 'World's Largest Village Store' in 1930.
