Woodland Waters at Ancaster also held their display on Saturday night with a bonfire and barbecue to keep families entertained.

Tim Schofield from the rugby club said: “it was great to put the community event on for the people of Sleaford after covid. The weather stayed dry if a little windy but our professional display put on a fantastic show which many said was one of the best they had seen.

“It was a pleasure to see so many people out enjoying themselves with about 2,500 in attendance.

“The event is not only for the community but helps raise much needed funds for sports clubs like ours which have suffered over the past few years and will enable us to invest in new equipment and supplies for our mini and junior section. We are already planning for next year and hopefully have some more entertainment and attractions for those who attend.”
