LUTTON villagers love their sausages and they were not going to miss out on their annual celebration in February just because the local pub was closed for refurbishment.

The bugling in of the sausage took place at the Jolly Crispin with more than 100 regulars enjoying a sizzling plate of bangers and mash.

New licensees Ken and Nanette Neelya hosted the event, raising £610 for village hall funds.

This is the 14th year villagers have got together to bugle in the sausage.

John Tolliday said: “It started because the Scots bugle in the haggis for Burns’ Night, so we thought we’d celebrate the Lincolnshire sausage.”

Sponsors were Swepstones Butchers, of Holbeach, for the sausages and QV Foods for the potatoes.
