The first Wainfleet Family Fun Day attracted 200 people on Saturday - with plans now afoot to bring it back’bigger and better’ for 2019.

Organised by Wainfleet Warriors All Star Cheer and Dance, the event featured entertainment from their young dancers, various stalls, tug-of-war matches, a fancy dress competition, and a cake bake-off.

“We were really pleased with how it went for our first year,” said organiser Rebecca Close, assistant coach at Wainfleet Warriors.

“We had about 200 people turn out on the day and there was a great sense of community spirit.

“The tug-of-war was really funny - and the local businesses were brilliant, having donated really good prizes for the raffle.

“It is something we will definitely look at putting on again next year - bringing it back bigger and better.”

The event raised over £400 for Wainfleet Warriors.

Rebecca added: “We are the only extra-curricular activity for children in Wainfleet - so the money will really help to support the group and keep us going.”
