CAMEO CLUB of KIRKBY on BAIN and ROUGHTON – JUNE MEETING REPORT
On 18th June Sadie Hirst returned to give us a follow up talk to the one she did last year, where she talked about the history of cookery books – ‘Much Ado about Food’. She made the progression from recipes to the material culture i.e. the pots and pans with which to cook and the ‘History of Food’.
She explained that decisions about what you eat, where you buy it, whether you choose to eat meat or be vegetarian or vegan defines ourselves and our cultures. Migrants use their traditions of cooking to help remind themselves of the countries from which they have come.
Sadie began in Neolithic times and took us up to the Tudor/Stewart times.
On the 21st May we saw the return, by popular request, of CATS the Coningsby and Tattershall Strummers Ukulele Band! With three of their players being members of Cameo; Sue Carroll, Sue Schofield and her mum Dinah Campbell, we have a growing connection with the band.
Yet again we had a full house and many visitors, both men and women. A very jolly time was had with lots of singing along, rattling of tambourines and dancing at the back. Band leader, Steve Tullett kept us amused, in between songs, with jokes and cartoons which included derogatory ones about Trump and Brexit! He also stressed that the band was always welcome to new members. The band meets most Mondays at 7.00pm in Coningsby Methodist Hall. Continue reading →
You are invited to this year’s Annual Parish Meeting, scheduled for 6.30pm,Thursday June 6th, in the Primary School Hall, Wharf Lane, Kirkby on Bain.
Though organised by your Parish Council, this event is not a formal Parish Council meeting, but rather an opportunity for the community to meet and discuss local issues informally, and to have some fun into the bargain.
As well as a Public Forum, this year we plan to offer a fascinating talk about the roman farm recently discovered near to our village, given by archaeologist Lydia Henry from Heritage Lincolnshire, a tart-tasting session, and a name-the-footpath competition. Children from the school have been invited to entertain us and of course refreshments galore will be freely available. Continue reading →
