A team of duck-herding sheepdogs and band of racing ferrets were among the attractions at the eleventh annual North Norfolk Country Fair, held at Weybourne at the weekend to raise cash for village good causes.

The event, which attracted around 3,000 visitors, also included arena entertainment ranging from a bird of prey flying display to a demonstration by North Norfolk Harriers hunting hounds, as well as dozens of stalls selling local crafts and produce, a classic car competition and music from Blakeney folk group the Old Wild Rovers and Cromer and Sheringham Brass Band.

Karen White-Robinson, who is secretary of Weybourne Community Fund, said organisers hoped proceeds would top last year's total of £7,000.
