There are also still a few places left for non-food stalls on the day.

Andy Pelling from the Deepings Raft Race committee said: “It’s free entry for spectators, the fun starts from 11am, and the best spot to see the rafts is Bridge Street, Deeping St James.

“ If you want to have some fun with your raft design or outfit on the day, the theme this year is Heroes & Villains but plain rafts and normally dressed spectators are still very welcome.”
