Fun in the Sun on the Square

The Hillington Square Summer Fete returned for its annual visit on Saturday, and it was bigger than ever!

Thankfully the torrential rain the previous evening had long since passed, and there was plenty of fun to be had in the summer sunshine.

The fete, now in its fifth year, saw entertainment from the Simon Rowe’d Show, Rollo The Entertainer, local singer Emily Blake, owls from Dawn ‘Til Dusk and the Square was even invaded by a Dalek from Doctor Who!

King’s Lynn Round Table 54 were on barbecue duties, and King’s Lynn’s Police Cadets along with Red Watch from Norfolk’s Fire Service also came along to help out on the day.

Also, in attendance was the Mayor and Mayoress of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Councillor Nick Daubney and his wife Mrs Cheryl Daubney, who came along to support the fete and take part in some of the activities on offer.

Freebridge Director of Housing, Robert Clarke, said: “The Hillington Square Summer Fete is always a highlight for us at Freebridge, and it was great to see so many people enjoying the weather and getting involved in the fun! We also managed to raise £126 through our raffle on the day which will go to Freebridge’s chosen charity the King’s Lynn Food Bank.”
