Making Messingham a Minibest Mecca...
Garden owners in the village of Messingham, just south of Scunthorpe, are being encouraged to create colourful giant caterpillars, butterflies (or any other insects) to display in their front gardens over the weekend of July 13th & 14th. The idea is to create a trail for visitors to follow using a map available from the village hall on the Saturday afternoon where all sorts of things will be happening and refreshments will be available.
If you live in Messingham and want to be involved just click the blue text to download an entry form to complete and return to the address shown. If you don't live in Messingham why not follow this excellent example and do something in your village?
