Summer fun at annual fair in Gosberton on Sunday




This Sunday (June 9) there’ll be family fun galore in Gosberton as the village hosts its annual summer fair.

And the event will be bigger than ever, says Emma Walters, who is on the organising committee of Gosberton and district Community Action Team (GCAT).

"The parish council has kindly again let us use the field for the event," she said.

Last year, around 300-350 people came to the fair to enjoy a jam-packed line-up of entertainment.

And this year, the fair will feature around 27 stalls, including a craft and food aisle, plus vintage cars and Boston Classic Car Club.

There is also a vintage singer and organisers have planned a visit from the crew at Donington Fire Station, with Lincolnshire Police and emergency service LIVES in attendance.

“We’ll have an egg and spoon and sack race too,” added Emma.

Other attractions include a bouncy castle, face-painting, children's games, a Pimms bar, outside drinks bar and much more.

And there will be a version of Gosberton’s very own ‘bake-off’ with a competition for the best batch of scones, to be judged by the Women’s Institute.

Another competition is being run for the best buttonhole.

Money raised from the event goes to support good causes in and around the village, including Quadring and Gosberton Clough.

This year, the main project organisers hope to raise money for is the regeneration of Gosberton Playing Field.

Ideas put forward for re-development of the field include a sensory garden, paths, jogging and cycle tracks, fitness equipment, and a football pitch.

“We want to bring the playing field back into the heart of the community,” Emma said.

The event starts at 10.30am on Sunday and runs until 4pm. It’s all held on the playing field on Gosberton High Street.

People are invited to bring a picnic, but unfortunately no dogs are allowed at this year’s event.
