People are being encouraged to look out for more than 70 Lincolnshire Day flags that will be hidden on October 1st – each one the winning ticket for a local lunch.
In total 73 flags will be hidden from midday, one in the area around every Lincolnshire Co-op food store in the county*. People who find one can take it into the store to claim a prize of £10 worth of local food, including everything for a Lincolnshire lunch.
Lucky finders who post a picture of themselves with the flag on Lincolnshire Co-op’s Facebook or Twitter pages will also be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a £50 voucher.
Lincolnshire Day on October 1st is a time to celebrate all that’s great about the county, including its mix of tasty local food. The design of the flag incorporates bags of Pipers Crisps from Brigg, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese from Alford, and Jenny’s Jams from Lincoln.
Member Engagement Manager Richard Whittaker said: “We can’t wait to see who finds our Lincolnshire Day flags, they could be anywhere so we hope lots of people take on the challenge of looking for them.
“We’re lucky to have so much fantastic local produce in our area so this is a great opportunity to celebrate it and give people the chance to win some for themselves.”
On Lincolnshire Day there will also be events happening in all Lincolnshire Co-op food stores* between 3pm and 7pm.
Customers will have the chance to ‘Spin the Spud’ in a game of luck to win a packet of Pipers Crisps or simply a potato. They will be an option to play again to up their prize, plus a prize draw to win a year’s supply of Pipers Crisps.
Colleagues will also be offering samples of county produce from Lincolnshire Co-op’s Love Local range including St Botolph’s Apple Juice from Louth, Cotehill cheese and Myers Plum Bread from Horncastle.
To help with their festivities, members will receive 10x dividend, from 28th September to 4th October, on all products in the Love Local range including Lincolnshire Quality meat and Gadsby’s.
