The following day (August 29), Thornham Cricket Club will deliver a new initative by hosting a six-a-side tournament.

Hunstanton Concert Band will set the tone for the start of the fun day with their lively selection of popular music with a swing.

The dog show is also back following its great success last year. Registration opens at 12.30pm with an entry fee of £1 per category.

The classic car display has been a long-standing feature of the event and organiser John Needham anticipates another excellent turnout this year.

Vintage and classic cars of all shapes and sizes with gleaming chrome and paintwork and enthusiastic owners are sure to draw attention.

Admission is £2 for adults includes a lucky number draw with a meal for two at a popular local venue as first prize. Accompanied children will be admitted free.

Proceeds from the event will go to support Thornham Village Hall and Playing Field in its maintenance and development programme.

The cricket competition on the Monday, organised by club stalwart Steve Lucas, has attracted entries from a number of teams.
