Patricia Grove Sales and Marketing Coordinator for Market Rasen Racecourse said: “The students have created an amazing array of views; they are so varied.

“I am sure the judge will enjoy looking at the entries and will have a hard task to chose the overall winner.”

There will be ten finalists in each of the five age categories and then one overall winner from the whole of the school.

The Love Market Rasen race day is sponsored by Market Rasen Town Council and West Lindsey District Council and will celebrate all that is wonderful about the local community.
