THE weather mainly stayed dry and calm for the Rauceby 1940s Weekend.

This year’s event, run by the Mid Lincs Military Vehicles Trust, was held over Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and had plenty of vintage fun for all the family.

The weekend took visitors back in time with military vehicle displays, a living history display, classic vehicles, a Spitfire flypast and an appearance by the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance on Saturday, plus plenty of activities for children.

Evening entertainment consisted of a swing dance in a marquee which was packed out with nostalgic guests, and cabaret evenings on Friday and Sunday night.

Organiser William Elkington said: “The weekend went very well and we managed to dodge the weather all weekend.

“I had plenty of positive feedback from the people as they were leaving, and on Tuesday morning we still had people camping on the field, they didn’t want to leave!”
