VISITORS to Upton enjoyed a fabulous parade of steam engines as a curtain-raiser to this weekend's Welland Steam Rally.

This eye-catching set of photos were taken by Jackie Surtees, chairman of Upton In Bloom.

Betty Williams, Upton Town councillor, said: "It was a fantastic time and a really good show.

"I want to say thank you to the organisers for the display of wonderful vehicles. It was great to see."
