Parish clerk Rachel Watts said: “We are so pleased to be able to hand over the money donated by the people of Stretham to EACH to help continue the care for children with life threatening conditions and support for their families.”
The Feast Parade saw a range of floats, all with a superhero theme parade through the village. The floats were dress by many local organisations including the Scouts, Stretham Primary School and Tiddlywinks Pre-School.
