New ideas are being invited for next year’s People’s Parade in the hope even more members of the community will take part.

Following a successful first event in June, a meeting is being held later in the month to discuss future plans.

The meeting will begin with a short presentation by chairman Ian Smee, who will reflect on the event at Sir John Gleed School, which saw hand-pushed carts, bands and other walking groups process through town.

There was also entertainment, food and stalls at the school site throughout the day.

Mr Smee said: “We had a successful first year but aim to increase the size and participation of the event.

“This parade is for the people, by the people and we are a charity organisation with no commercial objectives.

“We believe that the parade programme is consistent with the improvement and interest of the whole community.”

The meeting takes place on Thursday, November 20, at Bookmark in the Crescent, Spalding, at 7pm.
