Spalding People’s Parade has a new sponsor for May’s event in Taylor Wimpey, one of the UK’s largest builders of homes.

The company’s sponsorship has helped secure the Breaston Highlanders, who will lead the parade through the town on May 24, as well as help build a bigger event.

People’s Parade committee treasurer Bruce Alexander said: “Taylor Wimpey have shown real community spirit and their money has allowed the parade to be that little bit bigger and better this year.”

The parade also has great support from small local businesses, groups and clubs including Spalding Lions, South Holland Rotary, Connect Virtual Assistant, Accountancy Plus, Chain Bridge Forge and Rooke’s Pet Products.

Parade entertainment and stalls will be based at Sir John Gleed School, where there’s free admission from 11am.

Music on site will be organised by Dean Fitchett, of local band The Sound Injectors, and the licensed bar will be provided by a local, family-run business called Coronation Bars.

The People’s Parade will have one of its signature decorated carts in Moulton Chapel’s Tuliptime Parade on Sunday, May 3.

There’s still space for more charity stalls at the People’s Parade and the committee are still looking for volunteer stewards and helpers.
