Around 100 people enjoyed a sun-bathed fete at Gedney Dyke and raised money for the village hall and Lincolnshire’s life-saving charity LIVES.

The hall needs renovation work costing £38,000 and the fete put around £500 in the kitty.

LIVES first responders are raising funds for a gazebo they would like to buy for use at local events and are expected to receive around £60.

The fete was held at the home of David and Sue Baker, where visitors were able to browse goods on offer at a dozen stalls, play traditional garden games and enjoy Laddies ice creams.

There was also a bake-off cake making competition, which was won by Kath Day.

Village hall committee chairman Richard Ward said £6,000 has been raised for the hall so far, but there is a long way to go as council grants have twice been turned down.

The project to upgrade the hall includes new heating and air conditioning, windows and doors.

Mr Ward said: “We are trying to make it nice for people to come to.”
