Joining celebrations of the county’s horticultural history, Puddleducks Day Nursery in Spalding held their annual ‘Puddleducks Parade’.

Shona Smith, from Puddleducks, said: “It was lovely. We decided to carry on the tradition because the children are so young they won’t remember past celebrations.”

Parents and children worked together to make and decorate floats at home.

On parade day around 60 spectators encouraged the children who dressed to impress. There was tea and cake for all after the celebrations.

Shona said: “It’s just a really nice way to get all the families together. They all really enjoyed it. The children loved waving to their mums and dads and grandparents.”
