Buckets and spades at the ready! Gainsborough beach returns this summer

This story is over

Gainsborough locals can dust off their deckchairs as the town’s popular beach returns to the Market Place for two days of seaside fun.

A giant sand pit will be available for children at the free beach event on Friday, July 27 and Saturday, July 28.

Buckets and spades will be available for families to use on the day, organised by West Lindsey District Council.

Gainsborough Market will be open on the Saturday of the beach event with plenty of stalls to browse, while people can also take advantage of the one hour free parking initiative.

Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee councillor Sheila Bibb said: “The event has been really popular over the past few years and we hope this year it will continue to draw in families over the summer holidays for some shopping and seaside fun in Gainsborough.

“We have changed the dates to a Friday and a Saturday so that people can discover what the shops and the Market in Gainsborough have to offer.

“Not all families are able to enjoy trips to the seaside so we’re bringing the seaside to them and we are encouraging parents to bring their children along.”
