Spectacular displays from the VE Day anniversary airshow were seen by families at a fun day in Sutton Bridge.

Grand celebrations at the Curlew Centre marked the 70th anniversary of VE Day, with an exhibition of memories and keepsakes from World War II, as well as the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, including Spitfires and a Dakota bomber.

There was no flyby by the Lancaster bomber as it had been grounded due to engine problems.

The celebrations coin-
cided with an annaul family fun day at the Memorial Park where many families attended – approximately £600-£700 was raised to go towards the Curlew Centre funds.

The vast attractions there included a rodeo, gladiator and archery demonstrations and a crazy golf course. There really was something for everyone.

A bar and barbecue offered refreshments with sweet stalls to sell treats to the youngsters.

Organiser Alan Barber said: “The day was brilliant and we’re very much looking forward to next year. Most people enjoyed it, although some didn’t turn up because of the weather.” Still, he felt the day was a huge success.

Another World War II 
exhibition is due to take place in Gedney Dawsmere at the end of June.
