We look back at the Lincs Free Press this week in 1999.

Two-year-old ginger cat Prince has proved he is a ‘cat’ above the rest by finding his way back home almost three months after he went missing.

His owner, Amanda Valderas (22), of Hocklesgate, Fleet Hargate, had given up hope of seeing him again.

Ginger’s advanture began when Amanda and her mother Jacqueline moved from the Golden Bull pub in Holbeach Drove, where Jacqueline was landlady, to Fleet Hargate.

Drama Wonderland for 1999’s GCSE pupils

Pupils from Thomas Cowley High School in Donington brought down the curtain on Thursday with a hat-trick of shows.

Head of drama Mrs Lynn Burton said all the pupils involved in the production of Alice in Wonderland had worked very hard.

The production counted for 60 per cent of the final mark for the pupils’ drama GCSE.

She said:”I am very impressed with what the pupils have achieved. They have been outstanding and the moderator has passed them all.”
