The group Wymondham Town Team is organising a vintage event for September 10 after success with a similar event last year.

The day will feature 'Memory Lane' exhibits, steam trains from the Mid-Norfolk Railway, stalls with a vintage feel, a tea dance, a display of classic cars and vintage bus rides, live jazz, an old-fashioned cake competition and a brass band.

Suzanne Nuri, one of the organisers, said: 'After last year's success, it was a foregone conclusion that we would do it all again this September. 'We had so much positive feed-back from visitors including classic car owners, some of who had travelled from places as far as Yarmouth and Lowestoft to join us.

'This year promises to be even better and we are hoping even more people will come dressed in vintage clothes to add to the atmosphere.'
