The glorious weather brought families flocking to Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club Fun Dog Show and Fete to enjoy ice creams, browse the craft stalls and watch the rounds of the competition.

Among those taking part at the club's base in Back Lane was Angela Chamberlain, from Hellesdon, who with Theo the labradoodle dressed up as a policewoman and a canine crook for the fancy dress part of the dog show,

She said: 'We've got three thirds and a second place and we've enjoyed it. There's a group of us here who meet up at all the shows and have a good chin wag. It's a very social event for us.'

Gillian Saunders, chairman of the trustees of Hethersett Jubilee Youth Club, said: 'We have fantastic support today from local people coming out in the heat.
