Wet weather failed to dampen spirits at the Rendlesham Street Fair yesterday.
Rain forced many of the activities to move into the shelter of St Felix Church instead of the street by St Gregory’s Church, but the crowds were not deterred.
Entertainment included a bird of prey display, performances by morris men and belly dancers, and a Second World War jeep along with a whole host of stalls and other fun activities.
The event raises funds for the churches’ work in the community.
Nigel Harding, event organiser, said: “Considering the weather was absolutely diabolical it has gone surprisingly well.

“We had to improvise and sadly the weather prevented people from wandering around too much outside, but it has been a wonderful afternoon.
“The belly dancers were very colourful and having morris dancers inside was unconventional but they were both wonderful performances.
