The village is currently holding its 56th annual flower festival and fayre, and hundreds of flower fans have already paid a visit to St Peter’s Church, which is one of Prince Charles’ favourites in the area, for the four-day celebration of all things floral.

As well as the usual variety of colourful displays, this year’s festival – which is themed ‘it was a great day out’ - includes mini ride-on railways, children’s games, teddies from the tower, molly dancing and performances from the King’s Lynn Town Band and the Anthony Curton School Choir.

The festival also featured a special guest appearance from local Paralympic hero, Jody Cundy.

The swimmer-turned-cyclist showed off his gold medals to those at the festival on Saturday (June 3).
