Cameo club report: May 2018

From Jill Russell:

On 15th May we had a visit from Chas Tibble on behalf of Skegness RNLI.

He gave us a very enlightening presentation and slide show starting with the history of the lifeboat service, on our part of the east coast, beginning with the first boats manned by ten and then twelve oarsmen, up to the most modern Shannon class fibre glass boat, ‘The Joel and April Gunnill’, which went into commission in 2017.

He stressed that the majority of crew are volunteers, often with family tradition, who give up their time and risk their lives to save people at sea, regardless of the conditions. Statistics from 2016 show 431 lives were saved and 8643 people rescued for one reason or the other.

He showed us some amazing early photos of the rowing boats setting out in ginormous seas, a lifeboat first stationed at Gibraltar Point from 1825 then moving gradually up the coast to Tower Esplanade in 1990.              Continue reading

Annual Parish Meeting 2018

Those who came along to the village school hall last Thursday were treated to an entertaining and informative evening, organised by  Parish Councillors. After the Primary School choir got us in the groove with three songs, Alwyn Killingsworth spoke about the forthcoming Heritage Weekend which this year would be tied in with the Open Church Weekend on 8/9 September.

Councillor Pat Tartellin then talked about a new programme of Kirkby on Bain walks organised by herself and Councillor Penny Stones. Pat also said she was hoping to get Kirkby on Bain included in the Wolds Walking Festival and although too late for this year, she was optimistic for next year.

After a refreshment break during which we were invited to sample biscuits and vote in the ‘Bake a Biscuit’ competition, keynote speaker Eran Bauer gave a fascinating talk about the recent mustard gas major incident in Kirkby Lane which attracted so much national media attention at the time.
