Courageous mother Andrea Burkill was recognised with an Inspirational Fundraiser prize at the national Inspiration Woman Awards.

The Market Rasen mum has been instrumental in raising money for charity after the devastating news that her daughter Claudia had an extremely rare and aggressive brain tumour.

Such was the support for the Burkill family, they managed to raise £100,000 in just 13 days for the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at the University of Nottingham.

Meanwhile, police launched a murder investigation after the death of Betty Constable of Merleswen, Dunholme.

Her son, Nigel Constable was charged with murder by Lincolnshire Police.

Ms Constable was taken to Lincoln Hospital from her Dunholme home but died two days later.

A Grasby resident, Mark Linsay was jailed for four and a half years after a police investigation into a child sexual exploitation ring.

In happier news, a new adult day care centre opened in Union Street.

Town Mayor Steve Bunney said he was pleased to see Focusability set-up as there was still uncertainty about the future of day care provision provided by Lincolnshire County Council.

A group of residents were also setting up a group to help purchase part of Market Rasen’s historic station building and restore it to use.

The Grade II Listed property had been put on the market for £50,000 by its current owner.

Caistor Yarborough staff and pupils had cause to celebrate as the school marked its 75th anniversary.

And there was a celebration of Beryl Potts’ lifelong contribution to music at a concert in Brigg.

The Caistor resident was the long time President of the North Lincolnshire Music and Drama Festival Society.
