In spite of the rain, they all proved Britain’s community spirit lives on.

A Picnic in the Park, organised by Coun Maggie Gray and the Skegness Live and Learn Community Group, was held in Tower Gardens and opened by the Mayor Coun Dick Edginton.

Burgh-le-Marsh’s very first Town Crier Steve O’Dare opened a garden party at the Baptist church. Over at the Windmill Heritage site there was another garden party as a thank you to all the volunteers and supporters of the windmill.

There was more fun and games at Spilsby Recreation Ground, where town clerk Bonny Smith and friends held a picnic with live music and games organised by the local Rotary Club.
