Party-goers enjoyed a supper of sausages and jacket potatoes, plus a tasty dessert.

Meanwhile, things were getting very equestrian at Holbeach Community Centre.

Jockeys, marshalls, bookies and glamorous race-goers packed the venue in Fishpond Lane to bring in the New Year on a theme of A Day at the Races.

Following on from last year’s theme of Stars in Their Eyes, which saw the Blues Brothers and Spice Girls appear in Holbeach, 2017’s ‘home straight’ to midnight was raced down by race meeting ‘hot favourites’.

Best dressed winners were Andy Crunkhorn, who came dressed as a jockey, and three horsemen – Simon Bell, Mark Pearson and Duncan Cook.

Organiser Lizzy Coward said next year’s ‘Marvel heroes’ party may be their last - but made no promises!
