The people of Reydon and further afield came out to enjoy the sun and jazz music at the annual Randolph Hotel fun day. The event took place, as usual, on August Bank Holiday Monday. Guests enjoyed the sounds of Rhythm ‘n’ Reeds Jazz, stationary engines, mini display from the Lowestoft Mini Club, Bouncy Castle, BBQ, lots of stalls and the GRAND RAFFLE, with almost £1,000 worth of prizes. Proceeds from the day will go to the East Coast Hospice
We supported the event with our soft toy stall and raised £175 in 4 hours. A big thank you to everyone who helped. To view photos from the day click here or to see a short video of the day click here.
