Having a field day
Hunstanton Town Council held their traditional community fete on Saturday July 6th at the Hunstanton Community Centre.
Families, children and adults flocked to the site to enjoy the entertainment, stalls and refreshments on offer. Fete-goers enjoyed an afternoon of sack and egg-and-spoon racing, games, drinks and food with stalls on hand to provide a local shopping experience.
Tommy J Rollason was on hand with a free Circus Skills workshop, sponsored by The Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts. Tommy, a professional performer, taught the children tricks such as spinning plates, hula-hooping, juggling and more. The entertainment did not end there as spectators were also treated to a performance by Hunstanton’s Rock Choir.
In attendance and keeping within the theme of celebrating local open spaces were local organisations such as Northfields Allotments Club. Located on Cromer Road, the land houses 76 individual plots and actively encouraging wildlife onto the site, with plot holders constructing ponds, bug houses and nest boxes.
Recently a plot holder has requested permission for a beehive, which would benefit the ecosystem and result in higher vegetable and fruit yields and better quality produce. Their next open day is Sunday 19th August where visitors can visit the plots.
