Villagers enjoy Ludham Fun Run
Fun at the races for villagers
Residents of a village on the Broads put their best feet forward on Sunday as they took part in the Ludham Fun Run.
Nearly 70 people of all ages took part in the 6km fun run in Ludham, near Great Yarmouth, which saw participants either stroll or run around the picturesque village.
It was the 29th annual fun and although numbers were down on last year's 100 participants organisers were delighted to raise 369.55p for a charity close to their heart.
Money raised from the run, which saw 22 walkers and 46 runners take part, will go to the Spinal Injuries Association.
Ludham teenager Issy Sale was left using a wheel chair after a car accident in Horning in 2005. She is still receiving treatment at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Buckinghamshire.
Issy joined in the fun by helping to make 100 cakes for hungry runners, walkers and spectators to buy for a donation.

Her mother Jennie Sale said: 'It was a great day, the weather was lovely and everyone had fun taking part.
'There was not as many people taking part as last year. We think it was because of the two close bank holidays and there was a lot else going on.'
The fastest male runner was Joe Stacey, of Catfield, and triathlete Rebecca Horne clinched the title of fastest woman.
The aptly named Philip Conquest won the Throwers Cup for being the fastest Ludham resident.
