A lot of effort went into the Grimoldby and Manby annual village show and floral and craft show.

There were plenty of high quality entries and the judges had a tough job choosing the winners.

Karen Spooner praised villagers for their hard work and support.

The event raised £1,000.

She said: “There was a staggering number of entries which included a spectacular display of floral and gardening exhibits, a fabulous array of homemade fayre, marvellous show of art/crafts and a fantastic display of children’s mixed crafts.

“Many thanks to the judges who had a mammoth task of judging the classes.

“The trophies from Louth Trophy Centre and donated by local businesses were presented to the winners of the seven sections.”

Winners were -

Open Floral: Les Parratt; Decorative Floral: Pat Needham; Homemade Fayre: Liz Morriss; Vegetables: Ralph Needham; Arts/Crafts: Liz Morriss; Gardening: Les Parratt; Children’s Mixed Crafts: Edward Read.

Talented Edward entered four decorated small cakes, a poem, a face on a vegetable/fruit and a jar of mixed herbs and three beetroot.

Karen said: “After a walk round the hall everyone enjoyed the wonderful events on the school field including some amazing refreshments, bbq, games organised by the local scouts, craft stalls amongst many others.

“The committee would like to thank everyone who contributed to the day including local businesses’ generosity for the raffle tombola and the many helpers for setting up, clearing away and running stalls on the day.”
