There’s a chance for local people to get dressed up in 1940s style for an event in Spalding.

Ayscoughfee Hall Museum is holding a 1940s Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, August 15 and 16 (10.30am to 4pm both days).

Go to the museum and gardens for memorabilia displays, vintage vehicles, demonstrations and a singer on Saturday, when there should also be a Spitfire fly-past, assuming the weather allows.

On Sunday, there is the annual VJ Day Parade, when Spalding Remembrance Association remembers those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The parade will start at 2.30pm in the Peace Garden at Ayscoughfee.

Before then, Spalding Armed Forces Day is being held in the town centre on Tuesday, June 23.

Harold Payne at the Anglia Motel at Fleet Hargate is organising a seven-day Normandy trip, leaving on Monday, June 1.

The group, made up of veterans and members of the public, will visit all the famous World War 2 landmarks.

To book a space call Harold on 07530 006867 or visit the Anglia Motel.
