Hundreds of people enjoyed the sixth annual Pakefield fete.

Donkey rides, a dog show, a bouncy castle, a performance from Wrentham Brass Band, two dance troupes and games attracted attendees of all ages to the popular fete, which was held last Sunday.

There was also a display from the Lowestoft lifeboat crew, one of the many charities benefiting from the day.

Organiser Darren Clement – chairman of the Promoting Pakefield Group – said: “The lifeboat carried out a man overboard exercise which proved very popular.

“And it was really good to see so many people enjoying themselves and I have received many positive comments following the event.

“We had such great weather and I would like to thank all those who attended and to those who helped me with organising and making this a pleasurable day.”

The event, which was held to further raise the profile of promoting Pakefield, also raised money for East Coast Hospice, Pakefield Church and many other local charities – with the final total figure still to be tallied.
