SUMO wrestling, bouncy castles, a barbecue and live music were among attractions at a fun day at The Drayman’s Arms in Spalding Common.

Landlord Tony Branch and his partner, Mary Barnett, held open house to celebrate a birthday milestone for Tony.

Mary said: “It was Tony’s 65th birthday and he just worked his socks off.

“He got lots of presents and lots of beer bought for him for later on.

“We must have had 200 people here, everything was free.

“One of our regulars ran a raffle for a ward at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston.”

There was a disco outside for youngsters and singer Trevor “Budgie” Walton also entertained visitors.
