Residents came together to break bread and enjoy the summer sunshine for a national charity event.
The Wayland Partnership in Watton hosted a Big Lunch on Sunday, joining venues across the country to host a meal to bring local families together.
The initiative, run by the Eden Project, is designed bring communities together across the UK to have lunch together in aid of community, friendship and fun.
Held at Wayland House, the Partnership's event hosted around 35 residents, who brought dishes to share with their neighbours and friends, with activities for younger lunch-goers.
Suzanne Rhind, business and community development manager at the Wayland Partnership Development Trust, said: 'We had more people attend our Big Lunch than last year, so we are building it up.
