Thousands attend Christmas in the Park event in Grantham

Thousands of people attended Wyndham Park’s Christmas in the Park event to celebrate the festive season.

The free event on December 18 included a bouncy castle, stalls, a tea cup ride, arts and crafts sessions, a Santa’s grotto and a group of elves helping visitors find their way around a Christmas trail.

South Kesteven District Council (SKDC), Wyndham Park Forum and Cafe Indulgence co-ordinated the event and welcomed over 3,500 people over the six hour event.

SKDC’s Business Manager for Venues and Facilities Paul Stokes said: “Our thanks for fantastic support go to those from South Kesteven and further afield who visited the park and event and volunteers who gave up their time to make it a success.

“The HLF and Big Lottery Fund are keen the community is engaged with as part of their projects and we really felt a buzz around the park with families and individuals enjoying some festive fun.”
