After the participants had enjoyed their repast, they returned to play their final games prior to afternoon tea and departure.

It was a real ‘diamond’ of a day with many prizes to be won on the raffle.

The Lions have a few more tricks up their sleeves, with a Plant Sale on May 12 at the Lions Den in Coningsby when, after putting their ‘spades’ to good use, they hope to provide a variety of plants and seedlings to enhance your garden.

A Beer Festival will be held on the weekend of August 3 and 4 in Tattershall Village Hall.
