sampling some tasty Norfolk treats while talking to the people responsible for creating them, at Walsingham Farms Shop's Meet the Producers Christmas Food Fair on Saturday.

People could try Cley Smokehouse's air-dried ham and smoked salmon, have a taste of Mrs Temple's Cheeses, which are made at Wighton, and tuck into some bronze turkey from Godwick Hall in Tittleshall.

Whin Hill Cider, made at Wells, was also on the tasting menu, along with ginger wine and beetroot wine from Norfolk Country Wines, and beer from Wretton-based Wissey Valley Brewery.

There were also Christmas cakes and puddings, mince pies and more made in the kitchen at Walsingham Farms Shop and by people from the village, as well as a hog roast by the farms shop's butcher Clive Bird.

Elizabeth Meath Baker, from Walsingham Farms Shop, said: "It was a big social gathering for the village and there were a lot of other visitors too. It was good fun and we hope to do more events like this on a regular basis.

"Between now and Christmas we will make sure we have a tasting table at the shop every Saturday."
