We celebrated the

success of Glentham gymnast Andrew McLaughlin at the beginning of September.

He returned from the Special Olympics 2013 with seven medals including five gold.

Thousands of people gathered at Market Rasen Racecourse to watch McFly and The Vamps.

McFly thrilled the huge crowds for more than an hour and a half and tweeted directly after the show “SO MUCH FUN.” They weren’t the only ones feeling like rockstars in September.

Market Rasen Cricket Club’s 1st team capped an incredible season by winning the Lincolnshire League title and earning promotion to the ECB Lincolnshire Premier League.

It was a remarkable turn around as the squad had not started the season in great form. But eight straight victories in the run-in saw them beat Messingham to the trophy.

It was a month for good news in the sporting world as Glentham event rider Alex Postolowsky made her debut at the world famous Burghley Horse Trials and was selected for the World Championships in France.

And young Caistor runner Ryan Page was also making the headlines as he ran into top spot for his age in his first ever Great North Run.

He finished the half-marathon in 1:19:05, finishing 129th out of 56,000 entrants and the fastest 17-year-old.

September was also the month the Syrian crisis hit the headlines.

Gainsborough MP Sir Edward Leigh abstained from the vote on whether to take military action against Syria. The motion was finally defeated.

Closer to home pupils at Market Rasen’s De Aston School returned to class to find state-of-the-art art facilities had been built over the summer break.

And residents in Caistor were getting fed up of people parking in disabled bays without blue badges at the Lincs Co-op store.
