HUNDREDS of people gathered on The Meadows in Stamford to watch live music and enjoy a fireworks display.

Following Stamford Feast yesterday (Monday), Stamford Town Council organised Party at the Point to close a weekend of celebrations.

The town’s beacon was also lit and the town council hopes to site the beacon permanently in the town.

Mayor of Stamford Bob Sandall estimated there were about 800 people there, enjoying the festivities.

He said: “The fireworks display was one of the best I’ve ever seen and the musicians were great.

“I really thought it was a great way to end the weekend.”
