Despite changeable weather on day one on Thursday those behind the fun days say there was a fantastic turnout.

And with the weather improving for the Friday, even more people turned out to take part in more activities.

The Beach Days are funded by Boston Big Local, which is supported by partner agencies Lincolnshire Housing Partnership, Boston Children's Centre, Boston United in the Community, The Biz, Lincs Coast, Anglian Water, Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service, Community health and Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex.

Beach Days organiser, Fran Taylor of Boston Borough Council, said: "We've had a great couple of days, despite the changeable weather. People have just carried on regardless. Children have played together in the sand all day long.

"All the other attractions have been busy, especially the bouncy castles and the donkey rides. There have been queues for them all day long."

Richard Tory, chairman of Boston Big Local said: "It's been another success. It ticks all our boxes once again as a community event.

"It's so good to see the mix of all ages and nationalities enjoying themselves all together. Even the changeable weather didn’t put people off."

The beach area will stay in Central Park until the end of August.
