Crowds flocked to the annual Sprowston summer fete today to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Sisters Leah Carey, eight, and Eve Carey, six, had a go at archery under the direction of Andy Hood from Feathers and Fletchings Archery.
Parents John and Kym Carey, of Taverham, watched the youngsters perfect their aim before heading off to take part in the sack race.
Visitors to the fete took part in traditional games including a tug of war and an egg and spoon race, leaped on to a bouncy castle and had their photographs taken with some Star Wars characters.
They also got to meet Jambo the five-week-old African spotted eagle owl.
The fluffy youngsters was brought along by Jon and Helen Neave-Andrews, of Broadsview Falconry, along with another six birds of prey including 15-week-old Jasper the Indian eagle owl and five-year-old Rosie the Harris hawk.
The free event, which finishes at 5pm, ran throughout the afternoon.
