Every year the home of Tony and Margaret Dunton gets “lit up” for the festive season with lights and models to give a seasonal flavour to their Firs Road home.

For the Greyhounds -  Over £500 was raised at a special quiz and chips evening at Hethersett Junior School. The money will go to the Kerry Greyhound Connection which rescues abandoned greyhounds.

Bob and Jane have given a home to an abandoned greyhound by the name of Ben and were keen to raise funds for the Norfolk branch which is still on the lookout for either foster or permanent homes for greyhounds. Kerry Greyhound Connection exists to take in, rehabilitate and find homes for unwanted Irish racing greyhounds. It is based in County Kerry in Ireland and in Norfolk. The quiz was won by Bookworms.
