Other fun contests included tug-of-war, an obstacle course and a ‘DJ battle’.

The overall winners were Louth Young Farmers club.

LYFC chairman Matt Denby said: “It was a fantastic day with a great turn-out. It was great for Louth too as I think that is the first time they have been crowned overall winners at the rally.”

He added: “A big thanks go to Chandlers farm equipment for sponsoring the event.”
