Residents of Shouldham took part in a fun run to boost the fight to buytheir village pub, the King’s Arms.
The campaign, Save Our King’s Arms (SOKA), is trying to raise enough money to purchase the premises and reopen it as a community pub.
Race participants could chose to either walk two miles or run five miles through Shouldham Warren last Sunday morning.
SOKA committee member Phil Harriss, who completed the fun run with his son, said: “Over the years I have had such a great time in the King’s Arms pub.
“It is a brilliant way to meet people, and I have made some good friends there.
“I want future generations to be able to enjoy the pub as we have done.”
A beer festival had also been organised by the SOKA committee, which coincided with the fun run to allow weary runners to grab a bite to eat and perhaps a pint after the race.
The run was held in memory of Alf Kirchen, a former Arsenal and England footballer from Shouldham who would have been 100 years old this August.
Mr Kirchen’s announced the winner of the raffle prize, a tour of Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, from which all proceeds went towards the King’s Arms fund.
