More than 100 people went along to Wragby Town Hall to hear Bob Buffham’s talk on his 25 years working in the aerial crop spraying industry during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Bob, centre left above, started his career as an air frame fitter with Lincolnshire Aerial Spraying near Boston and then moved to Miller Aerial Spraying at Wickenby.

With modern technology in tractors and ground spraying equipment the once thriving aerial industry was in decline.

The evening included a large raffle and buffet, all helping to raise £650 for the Meningitis Research Foundation.
