Straw skeps, the forerunner to modern bee hives, were one of the attractions at this weekend’s Wimbotsham village fete.

Villager Jed Davies displayed the skeps during the popular event, which was raising money for St Mary’s Church.

Seven-strong Bowman Brass Ensemble entertained visitors, who also enjoyed browsing amongst the games and stalls. Horse-shoe tossing, face painting and home-made preserve or jams.

The event is organised by husband and wife, Liz and Philip Wing. “We’ve had a good turn out. We’ve been lucky with the weather,” said Mr Wing.
