The annual event is organised by the Spalding Lions Club which is a non-profit organisation, who has been working with Roger Tuby and Son for more than 35 years.

Stuart East, who is the President of the Spalding Lions Club, said: “ We really enjoy doing it and everyone involved seems to think it does help them.

“It is a safe environment and they are able to go on as many rides, as many times as they want for as long as they want.”

Some of the rides on offer for the youngsters included Disco Fever, Mini Planes, The Waltzers, Grasshopper, Dodgems and many more.

Spalding Lions Club member John Steel said: “I think it is brilliant – it’s the best day out of what we do and you can’t put a price of the amount of fun they are having today.

“Roger has been letting us come here for many years and it’s very rewarding to see all of their faces.

“There is no limit to how many rides they go on. One year one of the children stayed on the Disco Fever ride for the whole hour and a half – she absolutely loved it. “

Coun Andrew Woolf, South Holland District Council chairman, was also there to support the event.

He said: “It is very kind of Roger Tuby and I also want to thank the Lions for putting it on in a safe and secure environment.”

The fair will be open to the public from 6pm to 10pm tonight and from 1pm to 10pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
