Spalding town centre came alive over the weekend as a celebration gave families ‘pumpkin’ special to do.

South Holland District Council’s communities team organised the Pumpkin Celebration on Saturday which brought in a bumper crowd of people.

The traditional pumpkin parade was replaced this year with live music, entertainment and a host of stalls across the town centre.
