Beachamwell's day to remember

Children and parents in Beachamwell had a day to remember when their £25,000 Lottery funded play area opened on Sunday. Shirley Matthews, the mayor of Swaffham and 95-year-old Ruth Rix, the village's oldest resident, were invited to cut the ribbon to the area which boasts a climbing tower, talkie tubes, swings and slides as well as a picnic site.

Despite the wet morning, the weather improved throughout the afternoon, giving everyone the chance to make the most of the activities organised for the day.

Caroline Sanderson from Beachamwell said everything went ahead as planned, with people enjoying clay shooting, chicken lottery, china smashing as well as their bar and barbecue.
