A flock of ‘Plorofail’ penguins from Alaska arrived overnight in Cavendish on Friday, April 1, taking up residence outside the village community shop.

The flightless birds were the last creation of the Cavendish Joker, who has played a number of April Fools’ Day pranks in the village over the years.

There are still question marks over the retiring Joker’s identity or whether indeed there are several Jokers.

One of the more memorable pranks saw planning application letters for a lap dancing club sent to residents.
