The Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards 2014

Select Lincolnshire presented eleven awards to stars of the county’s food, drink and hospitality industry at a black tie dinner held at The Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa last month.
The compere for the evening was BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Melvyn Prior who introduced the pre-dinner speaker, Phil Bonner from Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire. Bonner spoke about the role of food and farming in the world wars and sustaining the military.

Guests enjoyed a welcome drink before entering The Woodland Suite where a three-course dinner featuring local produce was served. RAF musician Miss Sarah Jane provided entertainment during the meal with a selection of songs from the 1940s. Producers who contributed towards the meal included Abbey Parks Farm, Cote Hill Cheese and Grasmere Farm.
