The weekend’s downpours didn’t stop summer fun as fetes and parties got under way across South Holland.

Gosberton Academy saw 150 people turn out for its annual summer fair which featured bouncy castles, stalls and a visit from our mascot Spike the Hedgehog. Funds were also raised for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust on behalf of little Gosberton Risegate boy Lucas Devaney (3) who has leukaemia.

In Spalding, staff and residents at Cedar Falls Care Home stepped back in time to the 1940s with a street party feel, featuring a tea party and wartime songs from singer Stacey Wood.

The 1940s theme continued in Sutton St Edmund where Michelle and Michael Coleman opened the doors of their home Guanock House and Gardens, in Guanockgate, to the public.

Visitors enjoyed tea and cakes, vintage stalls and a Morris Dance display. Michelle said: “We have done a few open events now.

“We wanted to share the gardens, inspire people, and bring the local community together.”
