The Lindsey Patchworkers have been in existence since 1981, and for the past few years they have been putting on an exhibition of their work every couple of years at the Cyril Turner Community Hall in Ludford. For 2015 the exhibition took place over the solstice weekend, on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June.

The event in 2013 attracted around 420 visitors. Sheila Evans, one of the organisers, told me that 2015's exhibition was likely to beat those numbers. Two visitors had even come from as far away as New Zealand to enjoy the displays.

The event included a craft workshop, stalls, tea and cakes, and a tombola. Proceeds go to St Andrew's Hospice and the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
