Syderstone hosted its second annual fair on Saturday, with events taking place on several sites around the village.

The main fair was on the Norman Way playing fields with stalls, sideshows and races for adults and children, including three-legged contests.

Elsewhere, a dog show was held at the Lynn Arms, while the village hall hosted a children’s art competition, a Great British Bake Off, raffle and auction.

There were also children’s activities in the church, including an art competition and a treasure hunt.

Denise Bridge, a member of the event’s organising committee, said: “The fair is an attempt to revive an old village tradition. I understand there used to be an annual fair until about 15 years ago.”

Last year’s fair raised £1,500. Although the final total raised this time round is not yet known, the proceeds will be split between the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the village hall heating fund.
