A Norfolk fayre returned on the weekend and was so successful it will be back next year.

Traditionally held around the Summer Solstice, the Aldborough fayre in north Norfolk stretches back almost 800 years.

Last year there was no fayre as they could not find anyone to run it, but it was again held at The Green in Aldborough on Saturday, June 23.

Event manager Hannah Warren said: 'It was a great pleasure to organise this village fayre, with a marvellous team to work alongside. 'We were trying to keep a tradition dating back to the 13th century alive.

'I believe we were successful, as we had a great turn-out and made just under £1,000 before expenses. Thank you to everyone who attended. We will be doing it again next year but with even more attractions.'

Gwen Hall, who was one of the event organisers, said the fayre brought the community together.
