Our final image in a series of photos brought in by Vic Mallinson, of Vicarage Court, Sleaford, is of a lively children’s patry scene.

Mr Mallinson explains it was taken in 1953 and the youngsters were celebrating the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

They all lived in Manor Place, off The Drove, and the party was laid on especially for children of families living in the street.

All the mums and grandparents are arranged around the table watching over the little ones, so do you recognise any of the adults or children?
