A Skegness museum has been presented with a new exhibit all the way from Germany.

The portable thresher was a gift to the Village Church Farm from German twin town Bad Gandersheim.

Coun John Byford co-ordinated the transfer of the machinery, which has been generously donated to go on display with the museum’s agricultural collection in Boothby Barn.

Village Church Farm trustee Trevor Monahan, said he hoped to have the thresher as a working display at next year’s vintage agricultural and steam events.

Ingrid Lohmann, representative from the Bad Gandersheim Twinning stated: “Isn’t twinning fantastic. This is true partnership working.”

Chairman of the Skegness Twinning Association Brian Chapman said: “We have been twinned for 36 years and the relationship has continued to grow.”
