Villagers put their baking skills to the test during a fun-packed weekend in Holme-on-Spalding Moor.

The village held its Holme Grown Weekend last Saturday and Sunday (27 and 28 June), which has been hailed “a huge success” by one of its organisers Louise Ratcliffe.

On Saturday, a children’s tea party was held in the village hall and more than 30 colourful scarecrows were on show around the village, which people could find using a map. They were on display on Sunday as well for people to locate.

Also on Sunday, five gardens were open for the public to visit, which proved popular with locals. The Great Holme Bake Off took place in the village hall, with a variety of categories, including cakes, buns and biscuits.

In addition, a photography competition and craft fair were held in the village hall.

The winner of the ‘best open garden’ competition was Mrs Wardell. The Newbald family won the competition for ‘best scarecrow’.

This is the third year that Holme-on-Spalding Moor has held the Holme Grown Weekend.
