The Beccles and District Lions Club had another fantastic fun run earlier this year.

There was a 5km race, which the winner finished in under 21 minutes, and a children's 1km race, with 21 entrants aged 9 or under.

Each finisher was presented with a medal by The Mayor of Beccles and Beccles and District Lions Club President, sponsored by the local company Anglia Freight Limited.

Lion president Chris Eglington said: "It takes a lot of organising but it is certainly worth it judging by the smiles on everyone's faces."

From the youngest to the oldest they all seemed to have had a very good and enjoyable day, which is what we aim for.

Lion Steven Alderson, Fun Run chair added: "A big thank you must go to all the individuals that have helped to put the Fun Run together, and to those helping on the day, plus of course to those individuals that have entered."
