THE official opening of the Pakefield Village Green took place on Saturday afternoon, June 5.
The Fete took place in brilliant sunshine, and was opened by the Deputy Mayor of Lowestoft Ian Graham. Also present were councillors Roger Bellham and Pakefield's new representative Peter Byatt.
The community came out in force to support the Group and it was a wonderful experience to witness all the people in wheel chairs and mobility scooters who made the effort to come along and join in on the day.
We had people of all ages, and parents with children there, and judging by all the positive feedback and support from those attending, it was worth all the hard work and effort by the group.
The committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended the fete and gave us their support.
Of course the success of the fete would never have been achieved if the group didn't have the support and physical help of all the many 'helpers' who gave up their valuable time to man our stalls - set up the tents etc - bake the huge number of cakes and goodies and donate many prizes and nick- knacks for our various stalls.

The committee would like to say a huge thank you to all these people, too many to name in person, but each one really made a difference on the day.
We would however like to acknowledge the help and support for the fete, given to the group on the day by Diesel Power (East Anglia) Ltd Lowestoft - Jae Skipper who kindly loaned the group a generator, and Burgess Wholesalers Ltd Lowestoft for their donations of raffle prizes.
Also special thanks to Waveney District Council event officer Abi Charter as without her support, help and guidance the fete wouldn't have got off the ground.
One of the aims of the Green Drive Action Group is to bring the local community together and achieve a sense of identity and pride and enjoyment in the area we live in and the fete on the Pakefield Village Green, seems to be a way forward.
The group have various other events planned for the rest of the year, so please do keep an eye on our Village Green Notice Board and The Journal for information.
