The weekend of the 9th and 10th of August saw us hosting our annual Gala. We started on Saturday evening with our Family Night.

We had live music and entertainment for all the family. Our main group 
this year was The Rumble Band, with other live entertainment in between their sets.

This along with the bars, food court and children’s rides and side shows made for a great evening.

The Sunday our main Gala Day dawned bright. Stalls were set up, the boot fair was underway and the participants for the parade through the village were getting ready, when the rain started.

Undaunted the much reduced parade continued. The Gala Queen, her Princesses and Page Boys then drew the raffle. By now the field was under water, stallholders were struggling to get off, some even required a tow.

The Gala Committee would like to thank all those who came along and supported us over the weekend, you helped us raise approx £5,000.

We hope you all saw our amazing play area that has just opened, if not come along and enjoy it, there are even tables for picnics.

The committee would also like to thank Lincolnshire Coastal Grazing Heritage, John Campian, David Campian, New Inn, Wingas, Clavell/Axe and Cleaver, Tuxworths, Park Resorts-Hertfordshire, East Coast Carpets for their sponsorship. We would also like to thank Windmill Garage, Rand Farm Park, Butlins, Tesco, Sophie Vines, Seawaves Fish n Chips, Russells Circus, Rushmoor Park, Mr Chips, Crown Inn, Seacroft Garage, Askews Carpets, Churchills, Adam and Eve Hairdressing, Lakeside Lido, M G Bundy and Sons, Treasure Chest Nursery, East Coast Grafix,
