Village uses socks as bunting

Everyone seems to end up with a bag full of odd socks that have got caught up with the rest of the linen in the wash.

But a village fete is seeking to put unwanted single socks to good use this year by using them as decorative bunting.

The Suffolk village of Stansfield, which has just 250 residents, has been cutting its costs by using novelty bunting for its annual fete since 2009 when underpants and knickers were used to adorn the village.

Since then unwanted CDs and DVDs as well as photos of local homes have been used as bunting but when this year's fete goes ahead on July 19 it will be the turn of the humble sock.

Village hall treasurer Fay Grindley said the novelty bunting had now become a tradition.

She added that they were now appealing for people to hand over their collection of odd socks - as long as they have been washed.
