THE weekend’s 11th annual Walpole Steam and Country Fayre was a success, despite torrential rain on Friday threatening to turn parts of the field into a mess.
Saturday’s sunshine helped to dry out the field and, after help from some of the steam road rollers to flatten the muddy areas and help from many other faithful exhibitors, the end result was a lovely show held on Saturday and Sunday at Rudd’s Field off Police Road, Walpole St Andrew.
Sea Cadets from King’s Lynn and Wisbech competed well in their mini-tournament and the Mini Mayhem Pony Teams were a joy.
Attractions also included steam engines -full sized and miniature - vintage cars, lorries and tractors.
The last exhibitors in the ring were the big steams who shared the finale with a superb flypast of the World War Two commemorative flight of Spitfire and Hurricane.
Money raised from the event is for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
