The event, at Gimingham Village Hall on March 23 and 24, raised was opened by broadcaster/author Keith Skipper, and featured a collection of old photographs of the village, along with historical information and features.

June Collingwood, organiser, said the event was 'hugely popular'.

She said: 'We were overwhelmed by the support of so many people for this event.'

Proceeds will go to the MS Therapy Centre Norfolk, a charity which provides therapies, services and help from health care professionals to people affected by any long-term neurological condition such as MS, Stroke, Parkinson's and motor neurone disease.

Ms Collingwood said: 'The funds raised will be used to improve the disabled facilities at the centre. We are immensely grateful to everyone who contributed material and who helped us to raise such a fantastic amount of money.'
