A church concert, charity fair and flypast by a Lancaster bomber marked the 70th anniversary of the Dambusters raid in Spalding.

Kirton Brass Band performed at Spalding Parish Church at an event which also featured a talk by guest speaker Eric Quinney, a Lancaster pilot who flew P for Popsie in the Dambuster film.

Candles were lit and a wreath laid for those killed in the raid.

A car boot sale and charity fair were held at The Birds pub the following day.

Around £400 was raised, to be split between the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Spalding branch and Poppy Appeal of the Royal British Legion.
