It was a record-breaking day for organisers of the Kite and Classic Car Festival at Hunstanton.

A record crowd of around 5,000 people attended the 20th annual event on Sunday and organiser Nigel Corley said it should have raised the biggest-ever amount.

Organised by Hunstanton and District Rotary Club, money from the fundraiser will go to support local charities and The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, based in Hillington.

Mr Corley said: “It was super. We had a glorious day, we were so lucky with the weather. It was sunny and nice and breezy for the kites.”

As well as an array of colourful kites, the event was also a family fun day with displays, attractions, a craft fair, food hall and a Spitfire flypast.

“We had some very positive feedback from everyone. People kept saying they didn’t realise it was such a family event, not just a display of classic cars and kites, there was lots for children, Mr Corley added.”

The festival was held at Smithdon High School in Downs Road.
