After a cold and wet spring, summer is finally upon us in all its glory.

We asked people in Wroxham and Hoveton how they were enjoying their holiday season so far.

Keisha Doughty, 47, King's Lynn: "We did the high ropes course at Altitude44 in Skegness, and then we also did the high ropes at Holkham Hall. We've also walked alpacas at Wells-next-the-Sea, and done some crazy golf at Hunstanton."

Stuart Doughty, 46, King's Lynn: "I've been doing the garden now that we've had good weather. We've put a new trampoline in.

"We've buried it in the ground so the kids are on the ground so it's not so dangerous.

Giles Cutting, 51, Hevingham: "I've got a hobby that I do at the weekends, and that's being a gamekeeper.

"I do it for a couple of farms down at Hevingham, I help the farmers out and control the vermin. When the lambs are about you get the foxes come around and you have to control them."

Neil Peddlar, 50, Benfleet: "We've just had a boat out for a few hours and went down the broads, and now we're going out for a bit of lunch.

"It's a big change of pace. It's normally away from all the crowds but this year it's very crowded."

Ruby Peddlar, 14, Benfleet: "It's very peaceful here. We go for walks, and go to the beach. We've got a caravan at Cromer, so we go down to East Runton beach a lot."
