The sun shone and the rain stayed away and even if the wind was little fresh it could not stop hundreds of people enjoying the Ditchingham Community Fete on Sunday.

The event was first event of its kind for a number of years to unite all organisations and societies in the village and surrounding area.

Georgina Simmonds approached Ditchingham Parish Council to suggest the idea for a community fete earlier this year and was delighted with the support she has received.

“It was a super day and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

“There are so many people who worked extremely hard to make the fete the success that it was and I would like to say a big thank you to them all,” she said.

Among those who had stalls at the fete were the Friends of Ditchingham School, 1st Bungay Brownies and the East Coast Hospice.

Friends of St Mary’s Church provided teas and refreshments.

Attractions also inlcuded super trucks, a tractor, coconut shy, live music, dancing from Funky Feet, children’s fancy dress, bouncy castle and wacky races.

Bungay’s official town recorder Andy Atterwill went along and took some great photographs during the day.

“The weather was great and it was nice to see so many people supporting a great event,” he said.

A raffle with prizes donated by local companies, businesses and individuals raised £218 which will be shared between St Mary’s Church and all Hallows Hospital.
