The sun shone at the weekend and keen gardeners turned out to pick up some plants as the Lions hosted their annual gardeners’ market event.
Saturday saw 16 stalls in the market place, with fewer on the Sunday, together with a craft and gift fair in the nearby Festival Hall on both days.
Newly-installed Lions president, Gary Eastburn was delighted with how the event went.
He said: “It has gone great.
“We have not had a huge crowd at one time, but there has been a steady and constant number of people both in the hall and the market place throughout.”
The event also saw a planter competition for local schools, which was judged by an independent panel.
Winning the competition was Osgodby Primary, with Market Rasen Primary School in second place and Faldingworth Primary School in third place.
“There were some really good entries,” said Mr Eastburn.
“Well done to them all.”
The event was a chance too for a number of local charities and good causes to raise money.
Among them was Market Rasen Station Adoption Group.
Members Martin Barnard said: “We had a very enjoyable couple of days at the even.
“We met lots of very nice people and our ‘Train Game’ attracted a lot of attention, with visitors trying to guess the correct number of beads in our moving train wagons - the correct number was 252.”
