Visitors to this year’s Fun Day in Flinders Park were well and truly transported to a whole new level of excitement in Donington on Sunday.

The annual event organised by IDEA (Improving the Donington Environment for All) was given an extra dimension with two events as part of the Transported arts project.

A group of enthusiastic birdwatchers, the Nerdy Birdies, and an interactive Life Boat drew large crowds alongside fun day regulars such as Holbeach Town Band and Flinders Founders youth group serving refreshments (pictured above).

Spalding Flower Queen Inca Honnor officially opened the event which was rounded off with a Battle of Britain memorial flypast by a Dakota aircraft.

IDEA committee member Karen Major said: “It was a fantastic day and there were lots of people in the park enjoying the environment.

“Inca came along to open it which was really nice, especially with her being the last ever Spalding Flower Queen, and Transported came along with their Life Boat chillout zone which was such a draw.

“Flinders Founders did a roaring trade at their refreshments tent, the memorial flight added something else to the mix and it was also nice that local businesses supported the day as well.” Photo: SG090613-151TW.
