Hot food stalls were serving jacket potatoes, cakes, waffles, milk shakes and hot drinks.

Stalls included hair accessories and jewellery.

Emma Brock, shop owner said: ” The kids had fun, we had about 200-300 people in and out all day. The funds we have raised will pay for two coaches.

“Back in August we provided free transport to parents to take children to the dinosaur park.

“Tomorrow two coaches will take more than 100 adults and children to Banham Zoo, for families who have no transport otherwise.

“After that we will be preparing for a Halloween messy day where kids can come along during half-term and carve out pumpkins and we have a competition. Then we will prepare for the Christmas fair and raffle.”
