Families gathered on the Recreation Ground yesterday (Sunday) for the annual Lions Family Fun Day.

The sun shone on the many stalls and funfair rides as people spent the day enjoying the atmosphere.

The highlights of the Stamford Festival event were undoubtedly in the arena. Cyril the Squirrel and his racing terriers had the youngsters in stitches with their comedy routine, and various sporting clubs gave demonstrations for the crowds.

Proud parents entered their youngsters in the annual baby competition. And the day came to an end with a Churches Together service on the old bowling green.

Lions president David Palmer said the event had gone well considering the amount of options for people in the area that day.

He added: “The steam tractor was a good attraction. The funfair was great. The barbecue and hog roast didn’t last long at all. And the climbing wall was fantastic - I had a go myself.”

The Lions were collecting donations all day, which will be distributed among local charities and good causes.

Mr Palmer added: “I would like to thank all those who came along for their help and support.”
