There will also be games, including a teddy bear picnic, pass the parcel, tombola and grab a duck.

There will also be a bouncy castle, face painting at various stalls.

The event will be on Sunday, September 3.

People can register teddies or toys to go down the zip wire between 12.30pm and 2pm then Zip Wire starts at 2.15pm

There is a fee of £3 per bear or toy.

The event is at Dereham Windmill on Greenfields Road.

It will raise money for ongoing work at the windmill.

Dereham Windmill was built in 1835 and is the last of several windmills in the Dereham district.

The five-storey mill was saved by the trustees after falling into disuse over the years.
