A regular column for Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn.

Coming up this weekend is the ever popular Party in the Park, organised by Bakkavor and held at Springfields Events Centre in Spalding.

Originally this was a team building event by Bakkavor designed to involve as many employees as possible from their local sites and the ever popular ‘Its’ a knockout’ competition is a regular feature.

Recently, it was decided to open the concluding part of the event up to the general public and this Saturday will see a feast of entertainment from the main stage all compered by singer A-Jay.

The entertainment has been organised by town centre manager Dennis Hannant who will also sing.

Headliners are tribute band Abba Gold, with support from local band Radius 45.

The event is to be broadcast live on Tulip Radio, the first act at 7pm. The evening concludes, as always at around 11pm with a truly spectacular firework display.

On Sunday, July 19, Bakkavor, in conjunction with the Spalding and Welland Rotary Club, will hold a car boot sale full of wonderful curios which begins at noon, again at Springfields Events Centre. Additionally, Roger Tuby’s Funfair makes a welcome return to Spalding. Proceeds from the pitches go to Spalding Guide Dogs for the Blind, South Holland Phab and Spalding Breakfast Club.
