Organisers of this year’s Bilsby Show have thanked the community for creating a ‘warm and welcoming atmosphere that brought the village together’.

Around 300 show-goers turned out to Bilsby Church House for Saturday’s show to enjoy all the fun of a traditional village fair.

Bilsby and District Group Effort’s Gill Marsh said the day went very well and helped unite the community.

“Since we resurrected the show three years agao the people of Bilsby have been behind it,” she said.

“Having lost the village pub, which is normally the centre of any village, the show’s now the only thing that brings the community together in a big way.”

The ever-popular horticultural show saw many keen gardeners take part, with well over a hundred vegetable submissions alone.

Other attractions included an exhibition of vintage steam engines, wood turning displays and musical entertainment.

Gill has thanked all of those who attended, particularly those who took part in the horticulture show and all the advertisers who contributed to the show brochure.
