THE eleventh Walpole Steam and Country Fayre is happening at Walpole St Andrew this weekend.

With lots going on, there is no excuse to be bored, whether you attend on Saturday or Sunday.

Repeat visitors will not be disappointed with over 300 vehicles and engines on display, from full-size and miniature steam engines to vintage cars, lorries and tractors.

There will also be a traditional funfair with rides and games and plenty of trade stands to look around. For the little ones, Thomas the Tank Engine will be providing rides around the fayre.

Check out the arena between 1pm and 2pm. The King’s Lynn Sea Cadets ‘Marching Drums’ will be performing and there will be high-speed Shetland Pony racing. The local Greyhound Trust will also be showing some of its dogs.

Weather permitting on Sunday, there will be a fly-past from a WWII Spitfire and Hurricane at 4pm.

In the evenings, bingo for Cancer Research is at 7.30pm on Friday and there is a disco, talent show and auction on Saturday.

The event is raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, so go along and support this worthy cause from 10am to 5pm.

Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 concessions and under 5s free. Family ticket is £15.
