Caistor Goes... - coverage was disappointing

On the basis that any positive publicity is an advantage, the recent Market Rasen Mail report of the Caistor Goes Medieval two-day event was welcome.

In a number of respects, however, the piece did not do justice to the occasion.

The picture selection, in particular, conveyed little of the impressive panorama of two dozen or so medieval tents on both sides of the park; or of the actual scale, with some 20 different contributing organisations.

The five short paragraphs, likewise, gave a somewhat abbreviated account of the flavour of the numerous, professionally choreographed events.

Given that this was, probably, the most ambitious community project that Caistor has seen, the coverage hardly reflected the same.
