Cameo club: May 2018 report

From reporter Jill Russell

On Tuesday 19th June speaker Christine Chapman gave us a very interesting talk on ‘Lincolnshire Ladies and the Vote’. 2018 being the centenary of the gaining of women’s suffrage, this was a very relevant subject and Christine added to the interest by naming women activists in the Lincolnshire area.

The suffragette colours were Green, White and Violet and Christine pointed out that these initials could stand for Give Women Votes.

She was keen say that these were real women who believed that men and women should be given the same opportunities.

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.
