NOSTALGIA: Whaplode sculptures and haggis in Spalding 25 years ago




Whaplode villagers had the chance to preview the £3,000 sculpture commissioned for a new housing development off Mill Lane.

A miniature sculpture – depicting a husband, wife and child resting after a day’s work in the fields – was shown at a meeting at Whaplode village hall.

Artist Paul Williams also visited the village primary school before giving the talk and slide show in the evening.

Youngsters at the Priory School in Spalding discovered that a haggis wasn’t a cute creature with yellow legs 25 years ago!

The school served up haggis in the school canteen to coincide with Burns’ Night and to dispel an image about the Scottish delicacy created by a story the children had read.
