Spalding Nostalgia: Schools rugby, World Cup fever, competition winners and Guides in 2010
Spalding Grammar School were shaping up nicely for the new rugby season ten years ago after being sponsored by Maples Solicitors of Spalding.
The firm’s Grant Shackleton and Gemma Turton presented the shirts to captains Lawrence Rayner and Ben Garner.
World Cup fever kicked off in Spalding ten years ago with a fun day at a motor showroom.
Hyundai franchise EMG hosted the event in the sunshine on St John’s Road as a steady stream of England supporters passed through the doors.
Our picture shows EMG’s Patricia Souza and Carla Ranson cheering on Frazer Town and Charlie Kemp in the car boot goal game.
Four Spalding students were celebrating ten years ago after winning a national competition.

To win, the girls had to research an NHS career opportunity and produce a CV, job description and job advert for the role.
They chose the role of a counselling psychologist and it bagged them a £50 Amazon voucher each!
