The sun shone on Holbeach St Johns in every way as hundreds of people turned out for the village’s annual fete on Sunday.

A fun dog show, vintage tractor parade, flower display and several stalls were among the attractions and organisers are hopeful that at least £1,000 has been raised for Holbeach St Johns Village Hall.

The fete was opened by Andrew Hawkins, owner of Hawkins Hardware in Holbeach, and he was presented with a gift by Robert Frost, chairman of the village hall committee.

He said: “It was very well supported, the sunshine brought the people out and the day was absolutely fantastic.

“We had more than 70 vintage tractors parading through the village which was more than we expected, WI members made cream cakes that sold out by mid-afternoon and there were different fundraising stalls which we hope will make over £1,000 for the village hall.

“There was also a dog show, with classes including best dog and agility, which drew a big crowd and attracted between 60 and 70 entrants.

“The fete has been going on in Holbeach St Johns for at least 14 years and it seems to be growing every year which is absolutely fantastic.”
