The countdown to Christmas has begun, with communities across East Lindsey holding their festive events.
Wainfleet and Skegness were among a host of towns and villages holding Christmas markets at the weekend.
Wainfleet Sleigh Day included a Santa Sleigh Parade, a Christmas street market and a festival of Christmas trees in the Methodist Chapel.
The Silver Band added to the atmosphere playing festive tunes and there was a carol service and nativity play in the Market Place.
Visitors to the Church Farm Museum in Skegness were able to explore the traditions of Christmas with a ‘green’ Santa, a colour with which he was associated in bygone years; festive treats such as mince pies and ginger bread men that were baked in the farmhouse kitchen; Christmas meals served in the barn canteen; woodturning displays and gifts; 18 craft stalls selling anything from jewellery to Christmas cards; and a dog show.
To add to the atmosphere, members of staff dressed up in Victorian outfits.
Mike Walton, director, said: “We were really pleased with how it went and estimate we had 600 people visit us over the weekend.
“This was good considering there were seven other events in the area.”
