Framlingham’s fourth annual Sausagesfest drew its largest crowds to date on Saturday with more than 5,000 visitors from across the county taking part in a trail around town, where more than a dozen pork producers were vying for their vote.

This year’s winners were new competitors Mills and Sons Butchers from Southwold, with Friends Farm, who feature in Framlingham’s Saturday market, in runners up, along with Hall Farm butchers, which is based in the town.

Jenny Stockman, chairman of the Framlingham Business Association, which organises the event, said it was the best attendance yet with “really good reports from all taking part”.

“The sun shone all day, thousands of people completed the trail and people came from all over the country,” she added.

“Producers were flat out throughout the event, right up until voting closed and the entertainment from Greg Chapman was very popular as was the music from the various buskers.”

Ms Stockman added the feedback from visitors was that the event offered a “lovely atmosphere” and “knocked the spots off” the competition.
