Thanks Edward, you have put us on the map!

If you missed the launch or you want more maps, A3 size copies are now available at The Ebrington Arms. Continue reading

Annual Village Meeting: Update

From the Kirkby on Bain Annual Village Meeting sub-committee:

Penny, Martin and I had a very useful planning meeting last week. Learning from the success of last year’s event, we thought it would be a good idea to feature a few short presentations again, so we are working on some ideas for topics and speakers. We have also invited Victoria Atkins MP to come along as keynote speaker.

Apart from presentations and discussion, Penny came up with the idea of a bake-off competition, in which up to 10 anonymous bakers produce a tray bake to be cut up and everyone gets to taste a slice with a cup of tea or coffee and award marks out of 10. Martin has offered to organise a photographic competition, and he has already come up with a format for us to consider.

We now need your ideas! If you have a topic you would like to talk or hear about, or if you have any other ideas about what we might squeeze into a lively couple of hours or so, please contact any of us as soon as possible.
