Organisers of the South Wootton Fete say they have been overwhelmed by public support for the event, which was held for the second time at the weekend.

Visitors had to dodge the downpours during the festivities, which took place on the village’s green on Saturday afternoon.

But, despite that, Claire Johnston, a member of the organising committee, said: “We were overwhelmed by the number of people that attended and supported our stallholders and attractions.

“Obviously, the rain will deter some. However, we are extremely happy with the turnout and have still managed to put on an event that provides a fun day out for all the family.”

She added that planning is already underway for next year’s event, which has been scheduled for June 11, 2016.

The fete was opened by borough mayor Colin Manning while the entertainment programme included a host of performances from local groups.
