Well the Canal and River Trust is calling for volunteers to help
improve waterways around Louth, Sleaford and Grantham.
We are likely to see more commercial activity, particularly in northern
Lincolnshire whether there is currently trade movement but that is
capacity for more. Leisure is still an important part of local
economies. If it was developed more, we would have more trade. Pubs are
in decline at the moment. The message from other parts of the UK

This impressive shield is what they'll be hoping to take home.
The competition has been going for 62 years
I've been doing it for 14 years now.
But to have any chance of winning they'll have to get
the better of this man, last year's champion, Mike Crates.
I was the runner`up 19 times and won it last year for the first time
ever, which was very emotional to me and my family.
Given the area's fishing heritage, it's perhaps surprising that it's

We have a yellow running for rain. Overnight tonight, the breeze is
going to freshen. It will stay dry and be milder than it was last
night. We continue to see cloud increasing, rain pushing up from the
