Young and old were in the spotlight when Spalding’s Tulip Radio held its Christmas School Choir Competition and Veterans Badge presentation.
Choirs from South Holland and The Deepings schools entertained before joint winners, Westmere from Sutton Bridge and Gedney, were crowned.
Linchfield Community Primary, from Deeping St James, was second and Spalding’s Wygate Park Academy third.
The event was supported by MP John Hayes, who presented the Veterans Badge to the worthy recipients.
Jan Whitbourn, from Tulip Radio, said: “Teachers and children all had a great time and the veterans were great.
“John Hayes was amazing as always, gave each one his time and was very kind to them.”
The school choirs competition has been held outdoors in recent years as part of the Spalding’s Christmas celebrations but this year it was moved indoors to St John the Baptist Church on Hawthorn Bank.
There was a varied programme of music with songs including White Christmas, Shine, Must be Santa and Jingle Bells.
Jan said: “The children all seemed to enjoy what they sang and were very excited when they saw Father Christmas appear to give them a present. We are really grateful to everyone who helped us stage this event.”
