A town's popular street market will return this weekend with a Christmas special.

Earsham Street in Bungay will once again be lined with stallholders on Sunday, December 5.

It comes after the success of the garden street market in September, which was delayed from it's usual May weekend this year as a result of the pandemic.

Organiser Didy Ward said: "We are doing all we can to make this market as magical as people remember, but in a Covid safe way.

"All of the stewards will be wearing masks throughout the day and we have asked stallholders to wear masks too, as well as providing hand sanitiser on their stalls.

"All we ask visitors to do is be aware, try not to crowd together around the stalls and respect everyone's distance.

"But most of all we hope everyone has a great day."
