The third Rose May fete will be held next month - with organisers promising it will be better than ever.

After attracting 1,000 people last year, the event has been moved from Ringsfield Village Hall’s grounds to Bungay Football Club in the hope that more people will attend.

In addition to a line-up of local singers and bands, there will be craft stalls and a bouncy castle for children, and the popular dog show will once again make an appearance.

And a new attraction has been added to the fete, which takes place on Monday, May 4, with people able to show their classic, vintage or modified cars.

Denise Feek, one of the event organisers, said: “It’s a great day for all the family to enjoy in the sunshine and listen to some live music by some very talented young people. With it being entry via donation it doesn’t make it an expensive day out.

“The cars will give people something else to look at during the fully packed day of entertainment.”

A car boot sale will be held before the fete with the field open from 8.30am to 9.30am. The price is £5 per car or £7 per van.
