Hundreds flocked to Bacton on Saturday for the village’s long-running fayre and flower show.

The popular fayre, which has been part of the village’s events line-up for more than a century, included a host of stalls and stands, a traditional fun fair, falcolnry displays, a live music stage and a classic and vintage car show.

The main arena hosted childrens sports, wheelie bin car races and a dog agility show.

The event’s spectacular climax included a parachute jump from the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment Free Fall Parachute Team.

Phillip Jeffries, a member of the organisaing committee, said the event really brought the community together.

He said: “It was great, we had a fantastic number of people turn up - a great crowd.

“The event has never been about making money, if we break even we’re happy.

“The show is very much a vehicle for everyone in the community to come together.

“And we were very lucky with the weather when it came to the parachute jump.

“We had a nice blue patch of sky in the afternoon and the boys jumped right through it.”

This year the show included a special World War One exhibition looking at the village’s social history during the period, displaying the names of all those who went away to serve their country.
