The sun came out in south Lincolnshire on Saturday and so did its residents as a number of summer fetes were held.

At the Black Horse pub in Gosberton Risegate visitors 
enjoyed a barbecue in the beer garden and music from local band The Offshore Rivers.

Among other attractions was a painting table for youngsters.

There was a scarecrow competition at Weston Hills Primary School’s event, as well as entertainment from the St Nicolas Players. There were also several stalls, manned by parents, teachers and Year 6 pupils.

Although profits have not yet been added up, money raised will go towards buying new books for the library in time for September.

St Norbert’s Catholic Primary School in Spalding also held a fete, where over £2,400 was raised for equipment and learning aids for the new outside eco classroom.

One of the highlights was the chance to make your own smoothies while riding a bike.

Olaf from Frozen was also there, the school’s Year 3 and 4 dancers performed and youngsters painted tyres ready for the school’s new eco area. There was also a football match between St Norbert’s and Spalding Primary School, with the visitors winning.
