Activities may differ at each event. We will also be joined by the Co-op, Wildlife Trust, Rhubarb Theatre, and other partners.

Give it a Go: Community and Sports Extravaganza

This year, the Give it a Go event will take place at Carters Park in Holbeach on Saturday 10 August, from 11am to 3pm. This event will bring together local sports and community groups to offer demonstrations, taster sessions, and information. Additional activities will include a mobile climbing wall, arts and crafts, live stage performances, and more. The Chairman will be running the Tug O War competition.

Bike Jam: New and Exciting for 2024

We are excited to introduce Bike Jam, a new event taking place in Spalding on Tuesday 20 August, from 11am to 4pm. Located on the field next to the skatepark on Holbeach Road, this event will feature a bike pump track and taster tracks for children and families to try.

Communities Team Leader at South Holland District Council, Alison White, said: "We are delighted to again offer a diverse range of activities this summer, providing opportunities for families to explore, play, and enjoy the fantastic outdoor spaces in our district. These events are a wonderful way to bring our community together and create lasting memories."
