‘Mud, mud, Glorious Mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood,
So follow me follow, down to [Heckington Show]
And there we will wallow in glorious mud!...............’
We think we will all remember the 150th Heckington Show as much for the mud wrestling as for the exhibits! We’ve never seen so many people towed on to the Showground before. At least we all managed to make it into the Heritage Area, and still smile. We had more exhibitors in the Heritage Area than ever before - 58 separate organisations and individuals in total. It all added up to a busy, packed area with lots to see and do.
We are planning a World War One theme to the area next year, as 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. We again intend to have a separate World War One marquee and Garden of Remembrance, with a short church service. We have already begun our planning and look forward to seeing you there. If you know of other WW1 groups who might like to join us, either inside or out, please do let us know.
We think we might have a replica WW1 plane lined up............... and a tank – you’ll just have to come along and see for yourselves!
