The people of Great Bircham turned out in force to celebrate the village’s annual French fair.
Almost 2,000 people attended Great Bircham French Fair on Saturday to immerse themselves in a “bustling French market” and to support their local church.
St Mary the Virgin was struck with dry rot last month and, since then, churchgoers have been collecting donations to buy a new church floor.
Organiser George Hall said: “We put a temporary floor down because of the dry rot. We accepted the challenge it created and it actually made for more space for stalls and singers. We raised more than £6,000 towards the church’s floor.”
The church floor is estimated to cost £200,000 to fix completely.
Mr Hall added: “Everybody who came seemed to enjoy themselves. It was a very fun day and a really enjoyable family event.”
