The Messingham band,
with The John Freeman Cup

So well done to all the teams for such a superb contest, but special congratulations should go to West Lindsey Branch for scooping one first and two second places in the competitions!

A big thank you to our two judges - Chris Sharp for judging the Cup and Chris Turner for judging the Plate, Sue Faull and her team of helpers for the superb tea, the stewards for looking after the two towers and anyone else who helped make the event a success.
