Many thanks, to everyone who supported the St Peters Church Poetry and Flower Festival. What a wonderful weekend it was, full of beautiful flowers and poetry, delicious cakes and lovely friendly people. The grand sum of £1170 was donated throughout the two days which will all go toward the Saint Peters Fabric Fund. Saturday’s concert was such a lovely occasion, marking St Georges Day, Shakespeare’s Birthday and of course celebrating Her majesty The Queens 90th Birthday. The talented choirs and Forncett School Clangers performed brilliantly and the poetry readings were much appreciated by the generous audience. Sundays ‘Songs of Praise’ was a lovely way to finish off this wonderful weekend of celebrations.

May we take this opportunity to thank everyone who visited the church, took part in the concert and the service and to those who donated so generously.

We were able to send a very strong team along to the UEA today to take part in the Village Games Rounders event. The team consisted of Ben, Tom, Nic, Miles, Josh, Ellie, Archie, Hugo and Milo and were once again looked after by Amy as their coach.

We knew we had a strong team but were up against some large villages including 2 teams from Hethersett and teams from Downham, Briston & Melton Constable, Hainford & Stratton Strawlesss and the Lophams.

However, we started off strongly with a win and this pattern continued throughout the afternoon and although we came up against some very good teams they were no match for us and we ending up winning every single game (most quite comfortably) with every member of the team playing their part. The whole team were presented with individual trophies at the end of the day and will hopefully feature on Active Norfolk's website during the week.

Thanks once again to all who took part and for the support of those that went along to watch.
