difficult for volunteers to raise enough money to stage the event

It's the spectacle of peopld and colour you'd expect

:00:00.:00:13.

from any festival, attracting over 8,000 visitors and a place hn the

:00:14.:00:16.

top five of Lincolnshire events. But not this year.

:00:17.:00:27.

This year, the Riverside Festival looks like this. Quiet.

:00:28.:00:29.

Because for the first time in its 12`year history,

:00:30.:00:32.

That's the only thing everyone's got to look forward to,

:00:33.:00:36.

What's anyone got round here to do now?

:00:37.:00:39.

I've got grandchildren and ht's a lovely day out, and it fetches

A lack of funding and the redundancy of the fdstival

:00:49.:00:51.

left too big a void to manage by the volunteers alone.

:00:52.:00:54.

That includes the Old Hall, Marshalls Yard, the town centre

:00:58.:01:00.

independent retailers, everybody came together on that day

Behind closed doors, councillors want to support

:01:03.:01:09.

the festival, but unfortunately we don't have the funds to.

:01:10.:01:14.

Marcus owns one of the main buildings

:01:15.:01:16.

which houses many businesses that would have benefited.

:01:17.:01:19.

The cafe here will suffer because the festival was probably

:01:20.:01:21.

It's a shame, but it is a deeper shame because it

It is a point agreed with bx Donna, who owns a chocolate business.

:01:31.:01:36.

For my business, it is going to be a big hit for me this year, because

:01:37.:01:42.

last year was my first year trading, and I got a lot of business.

:01:43.:01:46.

But the Riverside Festival over the years has in my opinion turned

:01:47.:01:49.

It needs individual stalls to bring different people in.

:01:50.:01:56.

Whilst Gainsborough stays qtiet this year, there is still hope

:01:57.:01:59.

that the Riverside Festival could return bigger and better next year.

The men and women from the 062 regiment RLC worked alongside

:02:40.:02:42.

colleagues in the regular army, making sure people and equipment

:02:43.:02:44.

It's just a proud moment, being able to pin that

:02:45.:02:49.

on your chest and have it in photos and walk around whth it.

It makes you feel very proud for serving your country.
