FAMILIES enjoyed an afternoon tea and a historical tour.

Parents and children gathered at The Cross in Eastgate, Deeping St James, on Sunday for a treasure trail around the village’s historical landmarks.

Participants paid £1 for a map and had to follow the trail around the old buildings.

They were then treated to an afternoon tea at The Institute, in Church Street, organised by Deeping St James in Bloom.

Money was raised during the tea for next year’s In Bloom effort.

Deeping St James parish councillor and In Bloom committee member, Judy Stevens, said: “It was a nice event.

“It was well attended and quite a lot of families came, with parents and grandparents coming with children.

“We raised some much-needed funds for our In Bloom effort and it was a lovely day.”

The highlight of this year’s In Bloom entry was again the unusual container competition, with range of inspired planters placed around the village.
