It’s conker time again!
CONKERS at the ready! It’s that time of year again....
Coun Roy Campsall, ward councillor for Thorpe Acre, in conjunction with the Echo, have launched the Conker Competition 2017.
We want kids, mums, dads, and even grandmas and grandads from Loughborough, Shepshed, and the villages to find the largest conker in the land and send it into us.
In its 13th year the competition is open to all ages, and the conker with the biggest nut will receive member- ship to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and a bird box, and two runners up will win a bird box.
Coun Campsall said: “It is a great way to get families out and about, and down to our brilliant local parks and get out hunting for the biggest conkers.”
Send conkers to Loughborough Echo, Ark Business Centre, Office 7, Gordon Road, Loughborough, LE11 1JP, with your name, address, and telephone number, or contact Liam Coleman on 01509 635806 or email liam. firstname.lastname@example.org.
