And the following weekend on Sunday, June 29, Gordon Cochran is holding a summer bash in the town centre, from 10.30am until 6pm. The event will include an international food festival, a street market and a variety of entertainers and attractions.

Tomorrow, Bourne Outdoor Pool will open for its summer season. The pool will open at 10.30am when the first children will jump in.

There has been a small rise in admission charges to accommodate the rising costs of the pool.
