Holbeach St Marks had a double cause for celebration after good news from the Big Lottery Fund alongside the village play area’s first birthday.

Residents were invited to a Party in the Park at the village hall which has been awarded almost £10,000 towards a new heating system and improved flooring.

The celebrations included a land train, bouncy castles, children’s games and a raffle which raised about £350 for the village hall.

Clair Gooding, a village hall committee member, said: “People were very, very supportive and everyone was quite impressed with the improvements made to the hall and play area, both of which are really important to a rural community.” Photo (NIKKI GRIFFIN): SG070913-334NG.
