Peter Smith, chairman of the fair, said: “It was a complete success.

“There was a good turnout of people and everything went really well.

“This was the busiest and most satisfying and rewarding event that I have been involved in.”

The fair had lots of different activities and attractions on offer, including an aerobatic display by Extra 300 and a display by the Tigers free fall parachute team.

Mr Smith said: “We tried to put something new into the fair.

“We took a gamble with the air display and birds of prey, but it all went together really well.”

The fair also played host to the Stowmarket Flower Club’s annual club competition and the Stowmarket Beekeepers annual show.

Keeping the children happy, was Razz the Clown and Aunty Pearl as well as a number of fun fair attractions and rides.

There was also a vintage vehicles show, a birds of prey display, a dog show, and children could meet a number of animals.

The event offered a platform for a number of local organisations and charities to raise funds, including the Stowmarket Lions Club, the Royal British Legion and the local church hall committee.

Mr Smith said: “I would like to offer my thanks to John Goodrum, the landowner, and all those people who helped organise the day.”
