SO Festival Cake Fest

From Katie-Louise Green, SO Festival Coordinator for Magna Vitae:

Cake Fest will be showcased at SO Festival on Sunday 2nd July. It’s basically a 100 square metre edible map of East Lindsey.

 

People are coming forward to bake landmarks of East Lindsey, to be placed on the map.  Landmarks such as The Lancaster and Tattershall Castle will be created. There are hundreds of villages and churches, and I would absolutely love having a number of cake churches created for the map. Would Kirkby on Bain like to be involved? Continue reading

Woodhall Spa Country Show 2017

This year’s Woodhall Spa Country Show is only days away now, scheduled for Sunday the 21st of May. Come along any time between 9.30am and 5.00pm. You can find the showground along Green Lane opposite Canterbury Close (LN10 6QY), and a one way system will be operated on the day. All routes are signposted by AA signs.

“Our theme this year is to be ‘Traditional Rural Crafts’. The varied Lincolnshire environment lends its self to a wide range of crafts. The wolds have a tradition of hedge laying, there are dry stone walls in the Ancaster area and stone is a vernacular building material in the Stamford and Deeping areas. The fens and marsh have mud and stud used for cottages, some of which survive in entirety and many remnants are still there hidden away where people in the past have encased them in brick and tile as their living standards began to improve.” Continue reading

Annual Village Meeting: Have your say and have some fun

Last year the Kirkby on Bain Annual Parish Meeting attracted a record number of local people and invited guests, filling the primary school hall in Wharf Lane almost to capacity. Martin, Penny and I have been busy since then planning this year’s event, now called the annual village meeting, scheduled for May 18th, starting at 6.30 pm.

Once again children from the primary school will be top of the bill and they are working right now on their opening routine. The details are a secret of course but I have an idea that music might be involved.

Other highlights will include a bake-off, a local photographic display, an open forum, refreshments and guest presentations, including a keynote address by international motorcycling champion and local hero Steve Plater.

Let’s fill that hall once again! Download full details
