There was a great community atmosphere for North Kyme’s produce and dog show with a record attendance, say organisers.

The event was held on Saturday August 15 in the village hall and on the playing field and raised more than £1,000 for village hall improvements.

There were prizes for home-grown fruit and vegetables, home baking, crafts, photography and art for adults and children.

The dog show on the field was well attended and there were a number of stalls by local organisations including a wood turning demonstration by Stephen Colclough.

Villagers also joined in a scarecrow building competition with their creations being judged outside their houses during the week running up to the show, despite the wet weather. There were three entries based on the Minions movie - one made out of a complete round bale.

David Machin dressed his scarecrow as a traffic policeman with speed cameras, sat inside a scrapped police car. He came second while winner was hospital radio DJ Sheila Palmer who created a DJ booth with mixing decks, lights, posters and music.
