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. cole­man@trin­i­tymir­ror.com.
