A plaque has been unveiled to remember those connected to Goulceby and Asterby who lost their lives during the Great War.

Villager Jenny Oates was inspired to research the names of those lost and told the congregation their stories during a special Remembrance Service, during which the memorial plaque was dedicated by the Rev Cilla Smith. The plaque was funded through an East Lindsey District Council grant and a private donation from the village.
