These happy youngsters were just some of the Market Rasen Scout Troop members taking part in a series of exercises at Linwood Warren back in 1959.

Perhaps the camp cooks could have made use of one of the other news items making it on to the pages of the Market Rasen Mail that week.

Keen gardener Leslie Bamford of Middle Rasen, we are told, dug up an enormous Aron Pilot potato in his vegetable plot.

The super-size spud weighed in at one pound two and a half ounces - that’s 467 grams.
