Farming for success

Farming for success

The Natural World Centre’s latest exhibition ‘Farm the Land’ opened this week and is proving to be a hit with visitors.

‘Farm the Land’ focuses on local agricultural history gleaned from contributions from the public who share the same interests. The Natural World Centre has been working hard throughout 2013 to involve local people, groups and organisations to make the exhibition as comprehensive as possible and provide lots of information about Lincolnshire’s farming history.

There are various contributions that have been made which include photographs, memorabilia, artefacts and paintings which will be on display until Friday 28th March. Contributions include paintings with a contribution from Sally Lidgett and photographs taken by James Milnes and Robin Wheeldon, all of whom are local residents.

Ray Brewer, a born and bred Lincolnshire-man will also be sharing his memories as a child growing up on a farm in Eagle. The latest contribution to the exhibition is a scale model of a traction engine from Mr M J Phelps, a local resident who constructs scale models.

There has been a great number of visitors to the exhibition already showing the public’s keen interest in Lincolnshire agricultural history. Theresa Hobbs, Business Manager at the Natural World Centre said “We’ve had lots of interest in the exhibition with the film footage being a real favourite. It gives an insight to younger visitors and a wander down memory lane for others.”

Come and learn about your local heritage or maybe share what you remember? Our history is what makes us and should be remembered for generations to come.
