The event was turned into an evening of family fun, with organisers – South Kesteven District Council, Dysart Park Action Group and Grantham Rotary Club – laying on live music, refreshments and children’s rides and activities.

Visitors were also able to send a message to The Queen by writing messages on slips of paper at the Dysart Park Action Group stand.

Action group member Hannah Martin said: “The action group is then having made a giant birthday card which will be sent to The Queen with everyone’s messages written inside.”
