The celebrations   went down well with the public, although the weather was typical Bank Holiday monsoon on the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings. Fireworks could be heard, so folks tended to carry on regardless of the rain. I managed to snap a   Photograph  or twenty of the Saturday parade, and spent some time over the extra long weekend taking pics of the   Lincolnshire Themed flower show at the Methodist Church. The Spitfire flypast was clouded off on the Sunday, but he made an appearence later in the week, roaring over the town.
