Dickleburgh celebrates 90th anniversary of RBL

A south Norfolk village celebrated the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion in style at the weekend with a host of events.

Dickleburgh, near Diss, hosted an all-day event on Saturday when various attractions, including themed flower displays, stalls and music were part of the fun.

The evening saw a 1940s dance in the village centre.

On Sunday, a parade left the village centre and headed to All Saints Church for a service, which was attended by local scouts and US service personnel from RAF Mildenhall.

Classic cars were also on display at Townlands Meadow and there was an aerial display from two Piper Cub aircraft.
