The meeting on Tuesday 20th Feb at Roughton Parish Hall welcomed a new Chair, Carmita Booth, and a few changes were put to members:
1. Seating arrangements: Chairs to face to narrow side wall with a centre aisle, hopefully to give speakers a more manageable audience and the hard of hearing able to be closer to the speaker at the front.
2. Earlier start time from 8.00pm to 7.30pm to make the finish time earlier.
3. Spreading the word to get more members, particularly men to be encouraged to attend! We have a diversity of speakers with interesting topics e.g. last year we had an author from Louth, a criminal lawyer from Sheffield and a talk about Chatsworth House. Continue reading →

Adult Education Horncastle are hosting a Festival of Talks 2018, starting in April. “This year we celebrate each of the 100 years of the RAF. QEGS Horncastle continues on its well established and glorious journey alongside the RAF in Lincolnshire. Being well placed in the centre of the county QEGS has welcomed hundreds of air force children through its doors, where it has nurtured them for however long their parents have been stationed in the area. In Adult Ed we do our part and help with training to ease the way back to Civvy Street. Many members of staff continue to have affiliation with the RAF. We celebrate them all! Keep a look out on all media for updates…”

I recently came across a fascinating blog post by Dr. Caitlin Green, featuring a collection of early maps of Lincolnshire. Caitlin describes herself as a historian and writer whose professional interests lie in the history, archaeology, place-names and literature of late Roman and early medieval Britain.
She explains: “This post is primarily intended to share images of some of the interesting early maps of Lincolnshire that still exist, dating from the medieval era through until the early seventeenth century. Details of each map and a brief discussion of the principal points of interest—including the curious region-name ‘Ageland’ that appears in eastern Lincolnshire on many of them—are provided in the captions to the following image gallery, which I aim to add to over time.”
