Everyone’s singing in the rain at Woodhall!

The heavens opened but the band played on in Woodhall Spa’s Jubilee Park on Sunday - even though a request for ‘Singing In The Rain’ would have seemed appropriate.

The park was the venue for the village’s celebrations to mark the 90th birthday of The Queen.

Despite the poor weather, there was still plenty of entertainment - as our photographer John Aron discovered.

He said: “The weather wasn’t very kind and it rained for most of the first half of the afternoon.

“But the musicians kept playing under the bandstand and there were people sheltering under trees and a gazebo.

“A few others were even having picnics under their umbrellas!

“There was a real Dunkirk spirit about the place.”

Fortunately, the rain did stop and some children’s races went ahead,

The celebrations were a joint venture between the village-based Cottage Museum and Jubilee Park, with support from Woodhall Spa Parish Council.

Organisers had invited people to enjoy a ‘spectacular array of family entertainment’.

A number of special events had been planned, including falconry displays, children’s entertainment, face painting, a tombola and a raffle.
