Mr and Mrs Creed have thanked all those who attended or helped with the evening for their support.

Meanwhile, the church is taking part in a series of frugal lunches, which are being hosted by all Swaffham’s Christian groups to mark the period of Lent.

The first such event was held at the Methodist Church rooms last Friday and the second will be held at the Our Lady of Pity Catholic church today, from noon.

Further events will be held at the Baptist church next Friday, February 26, the Methodist church room on March 4 and the St Peter and St Paul church on March 11.
