It was family fun for everyone as South Holland welcomed in 2018 in fine style on Sunday night.
Spalding hosted two big parties amongst all the celebrations – at the South Holland Centre and the Springfields events and Conference Centre.
South Holland Centre manager Sally Harrison was delighted with how the evening went – with just over 200 people enjoying the event.
“Well, it sold out! It was the third year we have had a family party and it seems people really enjoy it.
“Everybody dresses up – and it’s great for families who have got children and don’t want to leave them or would be faced with having to get a babysitter at a difficult time.
“We had a disco and children’s games and food, of course.”
At the Springfields Events and Conference Centre, more than 400 party-goers went back to the Eighties with the band Now80s to enjoy some retro sounds before dancing into the New Year with the E&N Disco.
A three-course festive meal was enjoyed and the party went on until an hour into 2018.
The midnight hour was celebrated with a balloon drop and a confetti cannon being blasted over the dancefloor .
Delighted chief executive David Norton said: “We are already planning ahead for next New Year’s Eve!”
