The annual event took place at Richmond Park and Gainsborough Town Council activities officer Holly Parker said it was bigger and better than ever.

“It was probably the most well-attended Lark in the Park that we’ve ever had,” said Holly.

“About 1,000 people came and enjoyed fairground rides, local bands, community group stalls and a massive Zumbathon which raised over £1,000 for the British Heart Foundation.”

“Everybody loved to pirates, pirate ships and sand in keeping with the seaside theme too – it was all great fun.”

“The evening was very well-attended as well. Local band The Torn were brilliant and we had a barbecue and the most amazing fireworks display.”

“It was the perfect end to the perfect day and we’d like to have more events like this to really put Gainsborough on the map.”

Holly added: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who worked 16-hour shifts -–without them we wouldn’t be able to put on brilliant events like this to such a high standard.”

“If you’d like to see more events like this as well as our summer programme of activities, extreme sports and paintballing, then look for ‘Summer Programme in Gainsborough’ on Facebook.
