Stormy weather didn’t spoil Heckington Show

Weather was unable to spoil the fun as people packed into the successful 151st instalment of the Heckington Show.

Bad weather and windy conditions had threatened to put the show in doubt, but after on-site inspections and a review of the forecasts both days – Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29 – were given the go ahead.

Throughout the weekend a variety of fun activities, livestock shows and events took place as well as a fireworks display.

Thank you for the music.

However, not everyone wishing to take part in the show was quite so lucky, with Boston College posting on Facebook about being unable to attend due to the conditions.
