A family fun day of vintage vehicles, free face painting and crafts and plants is in Wisbech this weekend (Sunday September 4).

Elgood’s Brewery and Gardens is open for its annual craft and plant fair on Sunday (4).

There will be a large variety of more than 20 stalls offering a wide selection of jewellery, cards, candles, wrought-iron work, plants and garden-related items and much more.

For younger visitors there is free face painting alongside historic vehicles, the Family History Society and a demonstration of the famous Whittlesey Straw Bear.

The fair is open from 10am to 4pm and entry is £4 per person. Children under 12 go free, including access to the gardens.

Parking is free and there is a licensed bar where you can try Elgoods international medal-winning beers.

Proceeds from the show will go towards Elgoods’ ongoing fund-raising in aid of The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.

The hospice provides care, comfort and compassion to those nearing the end of their lives and to their families and friends.

People referred to the service have a variety of life-shortening conditions, including the many forms of cancer, heart and lung conditions, and neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and Parkinson’s Disease.

The percentage of our funding that comes from the NHS, 10 per cent, is well below the 35 per cent national average, so the service depends on public support, donations, legacies and volunteering.

The Hospice is organising tours of its building at Hillington, near King’s Lynn, for groups who would like to find out more about their work.

To arrange a tour email Jessica Walker or call 01485 601701.
