Parachuting teddies, a scrumptious brunch, school choir, races and fancy dress are some of the delights for this year’s Walsham-le-Willows Traditional Church Fayre.

Staged on Sunday at The Beeches, the action kicks off at 12pm when teddies will be parachuting from the top of St Mary’s Church tower. This is followed by brunch at The Beeches with tasty hot rolls and all the trimmings before the official opening of the event at 1pm.

This year’s fancy dress theme is War Time Walsham which promises to provide some lovely opportunities for imaginative dressing up. There is country and western from John Hubbard’s band, Punch and Judy, lots of stalls, face painting, coocnut shy and teas and cakes as well as traditional children’s races before the prize giving at 4.30pm.

The event is in aid of St Mary’s Church.

Dr Alec Russell, who for more than 60 years has hosted the fair, said: “It is a great pleasure in my 90th year to host this event at The Beeches and see the community, young and old, come together to support our lovely church.”
