Children in Caistor have been putting pen to paper to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I.

Pupils from the town’s schools were invited to submit poems based on the Great War as part of the display in St Peter and St Paul Church for the Churches Festival.

And teacher and playwright Andy Evans had the difficult task of judging the winning poems, whose writers received a prize, £10 for first place and £5 for second and third places.

The winners were: Caistor Primary - 1 Elicia Palmer, 2 Frankie Shepherd and 3 Imogen Horton; Yarborough Academy - 1 Ruby Ramsay, 2 Brandon Broadway, 3 Kelly Crowe; Lincolnshire Montessori - Charlie Ellerby.

The poems will be made into a book in the near future.

The display, organised by Pat Harris, also included artefacts from 1914 to 1918.

“I would like to thank everyone who donated and loaned the artefacts for the fantastic exhibition,” said Mrs Harris.

The children are pictured collecting their prices from the Rev Robinson and Pat Harris.
