The Lowestoft Dog Display Team wowed crowds at the event, which also saw a classic car show, stalls, a tombola, children’s games and a beekeeper.

The theme for this year’s event was dogs, and a variety of different breeds also featured in the fete’s dog show, which was judged in six categories.

A special beer, appropriately named Hair of the Dog, was also produced for the event by Rougham-based Bartrams Brewery.

Robin Sharp, chairman of the fete committee, said: “It went really well, we had a little bit of rain but it didn’t affect the day.

“The theme for this year’s event was dogs and a lot of people brought theirs to the fete.

“The Lowestoft dog agility display was a lot of fun and we have raised about £1,700 for the village hall fund.”
