Long Sutton’s Music in the Park on Sunday was a big hit for the hundreds of people who turned out to enjoy the free, family fun day.

Music in the Park is one of two big events staged each year by EELS (Events and Entertainment in Long Sutton) and it hit the right note with people of all ages with a host of live music acts on stage, stalls of all kinds and a funfair.

EELS chairman Jack Tyrrell said there were around 1,200 people on Winfrey Park at any one time for most of the day, with new people arriving as others left, but many people stayed for hours to enjoy the entertainment.

It was thirsty work for adults as they drank the EELS beer supplies dry.

Jack said EELS borrowed some barrels from the Royal British Legion – and they were left pretty much dry too.

People attending were also buying beer from the Conservative Club and the Co-op.
