Andrew joined Isle Councillors Ron Alcock and David Rose, along with North Lincs Council Leader Rob Waltham, to meet with Haxey Parish Council to discuss the Haxey Hood.
Andrew says, "Great to be down on the south of the Isle this weekend to meet with Haxey Parish Council and Councillors, Ron Alcock and David Rose, to celebrate the purchasing by North Lincs Council of a field traditionally used for the Haxey Hood. For those who aren't local, the Hood is England's oldest traditional tussle.
"The field has been bought for the benefit of the community and will be managed by Haxey Parish Council, meaning it is safe for the future. This is another example of how much we can achieve when we all work together for community good.
"Thanks also to Council Leader, Rob Waltham, who joined us too and who really drove forward the project.
"And yes, it was bloody wet."
