VISITORS packed into a Frinton shopping centre to enjoy an Easter showcase even organised by the Rotary Club.

The English Country Fayre – organised by Frinton and Walton Rotarians – was launched at the Triangle centre on Saturday.

It included a sprawling display of classic cars, live music, Punch and Judy, face painting, arts and crafts and a bouncy castle.

Local MP Douglas Carswell was also invited to attend and hailed the event and described it as a welcome boost to Triangle traders.

Robert Barnett from the Rotary Club said: “It is the first time we have done something like this at the Triangle and it went very well. It was packed and we would love it to become an annual thing there.”
