Great Steeping pupils are pictured, 10 years ago, receiving a lesson in Indian culture from Sunita Patel, of The Indian Experience.

Here we see St George’s Day celebrations in Alford Market Place 10 years ago. Helping to mark the occasion was Mablethorpe’s town crier who issued a proclamation during his visit to the town, which was made as part of a tour of the area for St George's Day.
