The 10-year long decoration of the Old Somerby roundabout has finally been completed with the final planting of 3,000 daffodil bulbs.

It brings the total amount planted on the roundabout between the village and Grantham to 18,000.
Old Somerby Parish Council chairman David Holmes and his team of volunteers completed the last stretch. He said: “It has been our aim to plant bulbs the whole way from the roundabout to the village and we have finally done it. The roundabout has really matured now and the flowers provide a delightful entrance to the village.”
The parish council is now considering planting some wild flowers in selected areas of the village.
