I was inspired by the heroes of Bomber Command and the Spire Memorial on Canwick Hill. My design highlights the scale of the Lancaster Bombers, the Bomber Command motto and that their acts of bravery will never be forgotten.

Game Engineering is regarded as one of the leading materials processing and handling engineers, specialising in the Biomass, Renewable and Alternative Fuels sector, working with some of the key players in the power industry. 2016 saw them celebrate 30 years at the very top of their game, including 26 years at the Witham St Hugh’s Business park site. This site is built on part of the old WW11 RAF Swinderby Bomb Store, and the one of the company director's wives is a Bomber Command researcher and has been a huge supporter of the International Bomber Command Centre, which is due to open on Canwick Hill next year. The company sadly missed out on sponsoring the Lincoln Barons Trail last year and feel it would be wonderful if there was an opportunity for another Bomber Command themed Knight this time, as the Piper's Crisps one was hugely popular. Either way, supporting this local event is something they are looking forward to being involved with and cannot wait to see the designs and finished trail.
