The hog roast was devoured and the bar drank nearly dry as Holbeach residents turned out in numbers for the annual food festival.

On a beautiful summer’s day, William Stukely Primary School played host to the event, which saw about 1,500 visitors.

The day was to showcase what is grown, produced and sold in Holbeacha and the surrounding area.

Main organiser Nick Worth told the Guardian: “The weather certainly helped and there was a steady trickle of people all day, peaking at lunch time, of course!

“The Cask in Hand pub sold loads of real ale and cider and the ice creams and Pimms went down really well too in the heat.

“Holbeach people cleaned up the hog roast and then just enjoyed sitting in the sun.”

Young band Fazed were very well received and all traders reported a good day.

Mr Worth praised the facilities at the primary school and said he is already talking to them about combining next year’s festival with the school’s sports day.
