THAT'S YOUR LOT: The Ashdown Club in Scunthorpe is to break new ground by hosting weekly auctions every Tuesday, starting on March 26 at 6.30pm.

TOP OF THE HOUSE: Congratulations to Anthony Johns, who at the age of 25 has become the youngest-ever operations manager at the Gala Bingo Club, Scunthorpe, since its opening in 1996. Father-of-one Anthony is a handy man to have around if there is a leak in the building, as he originally trained as a plumber. And well done also to William and Debby Jackson, who are celebrating 10 years in charge
at the Bird in The Barley, Messingham. The village local was built in 1987 by local builder John Slingsby. It was later sold for an undisclosed sum to Marston’s Brewery.
