Donington Summer Fest returned for it's fifth anniversary.

By Spalding Reporter

Smiling faces took over Donington Community Centre field at the weekend at the village's fifth summer festival, with next year's plans "already in the diary."

The day festival brought music, food, drinks and games to the village on a day which began challenged by the weather.

Jane Pearson, one of the event organisers, said: "Someone clearly wasn't quite on our side with the weather but we had a really good turn out.

"The morning was quite slow but by the afternoon we had a really great crowd."

A new 'Rainbow Gin Bar' provided a multitude of colourful drinks, while a crazy golf course, a climbing wall and a bouncy castle provided fun for the children, at a cost which event organisers say they aim to keep low.

Jane said: "The aim of the group is to have a good event in the village that people can come to and it not cost an arm and a leg.

"We have an excellent list of sponsors which really enable us to keep our prices down."

Acts 'Children of the Revolution', 'Radius 45' and 'Penguin' provided live music throughout the day, with guest DJ 'The Unfamous SJC' filling the gaps.

Spalding Going Forward social group, Swineshead Scouts and LIVES First Responders also held stalls at the event to raise money for their organisations.

Next year's summer festival will take place on the 4th July.
