The annual Butcher’s Pride sausage competition takes place in Spalding on Friday.
Butchers from Spalding, The Deepings and Boston will put their sausages before a panel of judges to compete for the honour of best Lincolnshire sausage, best specialist sausage and best overall.
Now in its sixth year, the rivalry between our local butchers continues in a competitive yet friendly way, with 35 entries last year.
The competition takes place at The Moorings in Commercial Road and judges are John Hayes MP, writer and broadcaster Alan Stennett, Keith Gott from the Federation of Small Businesses, Free Press editor Jeremy Ransome, Boston College chair of governors Peter Cropley and Elizabeth Sneath from South Holland District Council.
Mr Hayes, who started the competition, which is organised by Boston College, five years ago, said: “Why not drop in to support your local butcher or just call for a coffee and see the judging in action?”
