Hopton families enjoyed festive fun at the Community Christmas Party in the village hall.

The Tricky Twister entertained the children, and a huge cheer went up when Santa dropped in to hand out Christmas gifts. Refreshments were served during the afternoon. The event was organised by the Parish Council, with support from the Great Yarmouth Lions Club and volunteers who helped to make the day such a success. The Parish Council would like to thank everyone who helped. The raffle made £141.
