Nearly 500 people tried a selection of sports on the Sir Halley Stewart Field in Spalding at the weekend.

Give it a Go was part of South Holland District Council's health and wellness SHout and About programme.

The event also formed part of the Great Get Together weekend in memory of Jo Cox MP, and it saw people try a host of fun fitness disciplines.

Some 20 clubs and activities supported the event, putting on a series of stalls and tasters, including demonstrations from Boogie Bounce trampoline fitness, Totally Shredded Drum N' Bass Workout and Hummingbird hypnotherapy and mindfulness.

On the sports side there was representation from Spalding Town Tennis Club and Spalding Rink hockey club, as well as the chance to take part in archery, rowing, croquet, karate and netball.

Coun Gary Taylor, South Holland Council Portfolio Holder for community and facilities, said: "The aim with Give it a Go and the SHout and About programme was to offer a fun, free opportunity for people to spend time with loved ones, trying exciting new activities and to share new and exciting ways of staying fit and healthy.

"It was fantastic to see so many people come along to take part, and really reinforces how much the community has embraced SHout and About and all of its events. It was a brilliant day and the amount of enjoyment being had by all was clear to see. We hope some lasting links have been built and having 'given it a go', people will continue to explore the clubs, groups and sports they tried into the future."

The next SHout and About events will be the Activate dates running throughout August in Holbeach, Crowland, Pinchbeck, Sutton Bridge and Gosberton. The Summer Fun brochure will also be distributed via primary schools before children break up for the summer. You will be able to find these listings online at www.sholland.gov.uk/summerfun
