Held last Saturday, some entered into the spirit of the event donning cowboy shirts and Stetsons, with the prize for best fancy dress outfit going to three-year-old local youngster Nathan Strozynska.

Visitors were invited into the large garden of the home’s Lavender Cottage annexe to take part in a range of games for families from horseshoe ring toss to a tin can alley.

There was also a bouncy castle, face painting and balloon modelling from the Tricky Twister.

A barbecue and a cake and refreshments stall were running throughout the event.

Local musician Gwynn Pritchard also entertained visitors with his country and western repertoire.

The charity event raised around £360 which will be split between Help for Heroes and the Waveney Carers and Friends Group.
