Annual Parish (Village) Meeting 2019

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

Nursery Litter Pickers

From Martin Briscombe

As part of their Walking Wednesday, pupils from Kirkby on Bain Nursery can be seen collecting  litter from around the village  footpaths for safe disposal, rubbish that has been carelessly discarded, dropped or blown from traffic en route through the village.

These children are showing us the way to be environmentally aware and for them it’s a win-win situation. Not only are they enjoying walking out in the fresh air but also they are making Kirkby on Bain a tidier place for everyone to live and learn. Well done to The Nursery!

Cameo club report: April 2019

From Jill Russell

Cameo Club of Kirkby on Bain and Roughton – April 16th Meeting

At the start we wished our Chair, Carmita, well after her recent illness. Our deputy chair, Sue Bruzas, requested we sign a card to give her to show our support. We have also received a card from SANDS, our charity this year, thanking us for the contribution given to them so far.

We then had a first for our club! Instead of a talk we had Rachel Crooks from ‘Dance Fuzion’ lead us in an exercise session to music. Members varied in age and abilities but Rachel led us through a series of exercises where we could sit or stand if preferred and she sympathetically encouraged us to put as much effort in as we wished or of which we were capable!

We exercised arms, legs, hips, thighs, tummies, core etc with ever more increasing speed and need for co-ordination. We had a good laugh and a very enjoyable time was had by all. We discovered some parts of our bodies which we probably had forgotten we had! The overall message was that at whatever age exercise is good and very necessary.          Continue reading
