UNIVERSITY STAND SCOOPS TOP PRIZE

 

Judges at the 118th Lincolnshire Show were impressed with the hard work and creativity that went into the University of Lincolnís stand.

 

The university was awarded the Constance Eastwood Challenge Cup special prize for the best large non-agricultural display.

 

Show President Julian Proctor (right) presented the trophy to John Trigg (left), further education marketing co-ordinator in the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture, and Steve Watson, further education co-ordinator at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture.

 

Staff and students from Riseholme Park and the Caythorpe campus near Grantham worked hard to produce the stand, which featured displays on the universityís agriculture, horticulture, recreation and animal-related courses.

 

Also on show was a scale model of the proposed £2 million development at Riseholme Park which will include new equine and animal care facilities.

 

The centrepiece of the universityís stand was a temporary garden and a display showing a tractor ploughing a furrow to reveal a Roman mosaic of the universityís new logo of Minerva, goddess of wisdom and learning.
