A great day was had by all as more than 1,000 visitors flocked to the Holbeach Food Festival on Saturday.

The third annual festival took place in the grounds of the William Stukely Primary School and was spared the rain that has blighted so many events recently.

Coun Nick Worth, who organises the event, said visitor numbers were slightly down on previous years but everyone was clearly spending money so the stall holders were delighted.

New businesswoman Stephanie Smithson from Holbeach sold out of cupcakes cupcakes and the hog roast also did fantastic business.

Lymn Bank Farm Cheeses reported a good day as did Berberis House Apiary, who had a great day selling honey and related products.

Silver Finns of Dereham sold out of fresh Cromer Crabs and Bakkavor Pizzas were busy as ever.

Mr Worth aded: “Thanks to the Holbeach St Marks Community Gym for their financial support and The Healthy Hub Grant promoting volunteering in the Holbeach Community Library.

“Jazz from the Kingswingers and Hob and the Goblin provided just the right entertainment and Helen Lea’s Zumba Dancers showed the way to keep fit after consuming a really great array of food.”
