Butchers from our area came together at the annual Spalding and East Elloe Butchers’ Association dinner and dance event.

The butchers enjoyed a traditional roast rib of beef meal, provided and carved by local butchers at the event themed Best of British.

The entertainment at the event also tied in nicely with the theme, as Beatles tribute act Like the Beatles performed at the dinner at the South Holland Centre.

Over £500 was raised at the event, attended by 113 people, for LIVES, the charity chosen by president Terry Wells.

He said: “The evening went very well and everybody enjoyed themselves.

“I chose LIVES as the charity this year because they give up their time to look after us when we are not well. It’s a very good cause.

“Like the Beatles were very good – lots of people were up dancing to them and they were exactly like The Beatles – it was as if they were in the room with us.”
