Another very successful Bridge Day was played in Caistor Town Hall with 92 players attending from as far away as Lincoln, Horncastle and Newark, as well as closer to home.

The players enjoyed a delicious lunch, prepared and served by the Ecclesiastical Caterers and helpers, and also took part in a raffle.

A total of £1,337 was raised for church funds and the Rev Canon Ian Robinson thanked the event sponsors and the catering team, as well as everyone who had gone along to play on the day, before presenting the winners with their well-earned prizes.

And the couple who played their cards right to take the top prize in this annual fundraising event was David and Mary Hardy from Cleethorpes, who each received two bottles of wine.

In second place was the home-grown husband and wife team of Hilary and Dee de Wit, who received a bottle of Bells whisky each, and in third place were Pauline Lee from Cleethorpes and Janet Border from Grimsby, who each 
received a Cherry Valley Duck.
