The Lincolnshire Food and Vintage Festival offered everyone who came an essence of the renowned food heritage of the county.

The Bells Nursery Centre off Lowfields Road in Benington hosted the event earlier this month.

One of the main organisers, Charlotte Aiken, said: “It was really successful and far more people came along than we thought there would be.”

Roughly 1,160 people attended the festival that the organisers hope will become an annual event, with plans already being made to make it a charity event next 
year.

There was everything from cooking demonstrations to local hot and cold food stalls displaying fine cheese, local meats, jams and preserves, and a vintage car and tractor display.

Spicy street food, paninis, sandwhich stalls and a barbecue provided snacks for visitors while adults relaxed drinking Pimms and 
beer.
