On special occasions, each year, St Mary's Church in Stalham becomes a bustling venue to display and show off the talents of local artists.

Over 20 stands, offering a variety of crafted items were on show along the church pews during last weekend's event, which raised over £300 for church funds.

Visitors could admire or buy items or sit and talk and absorb the mouth-watering aromas of homemade cakes, buns, pies and soups all served up by the Reverend Simon Lawrence, his wife Emma and a devoted team of helpers.

'We have had a great response this year and it is wonderful to see so many people of all ages visit our annual event and we must thank everyone for their support,' said Mrs Lawrence.
