Deer may be occasionally spotted in Thetford Forest but it was not difficult to discover these colourful creatures created as part of Thetford’s two week Festival which is currently running in the town.

A competition to decorate five deer sculptures, sponsored by Shadwell Stud, has been judged with Raleigh School winning best design.

This year’s festival showcases local students’ artwork, music, drama, historical guided tours and a family fun day.

Tonight the town hosts its night market and tomorrow there is the massive family fun day on Melford Common.

This is the fourth year the event has run in its current format which has been organised by Thetford Tourism and Heritage Partnership.

Mayor Stuart Wright said: “We have had some positive feed back and we have had some cracking weather which has certainly helped.”
