WHILE Team GB is competing for medals at London 2012, residents at Gosberton Risegate were taking part in their own version of the Olympics.

Organised by the Marjorum Beehive Association, the event was staged thanks to a £1,000 grant from The Lincolnshire Co-op.

Association treasurer Helen Thorley said: “The grant enabled us to cover all the costs of staging the event and we will be able to use the equipment for future events.

“The sports day was really well supported and people are saying they would like it to become an annual event, so that’s something we’ll consider.”

Races included egg and spoon and space hopper and everyone who took part in the races on the day received a medal.
