Air festival managing director Paul Bayfield said: "We are particularly pleased that these awards represent appropriate recognition for the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival from its peers in the world of business.

"We can now fully understand the value placed on the event and how important it is to the local community and businesses and what responsibility we have to keep the event going."

In each of the past two years, organisers have handed more than £28,000 to local and regional charities who have helped as stewards and salespeople.
