A summer playscheme at Holbeach was attracting nearly 100 people most days in 1979.

The scheme was organised by play leader Mrs Sue Shaw, with the dedicated help of other local people.

She said: “There is nothing for children in Holbeach, no swimming pool or cinema, and the playscheme at the youth centre is a great success.”

The children enjoyed film shows, an RAF visit, a flower arranging demonstration and a talk by Keith Roberts of Holbeach Model Aero Club.
