Hot off the heels of celebrating last week's second ever Suffolk Day, Dr Dan was delighted to meet so many people at the annual summer fetes in Wickham Skeith and Playford.
Dr Dan officially opened the annual "Grimmer Fete" in Wickham Skeith, where crowds came out to enjoy the summer sunshine and a host of activities on the village green, including Pig Bowling and a Smash the Crockery Stand, plus an impressive display of vintage cars, all raising vital funds for the local community.
