A POPULAR village family day is returning this year after a year's break.

The Bildeston Show and Family Day will be held on Sunday, August 17, starting at 11am.

The show was revived by Bildeston's Sportsfield Committee in 1994 and its new format is now in its eighth year.

Past shows have raised money to build a new sports pavilion, completed in 1999, and the committee is aiming for the money raised this year to further improve village sports facilities.
