Cameo club report: June 2109

CAMEO CLUB of KIRKBY on BAIN and ROUGHTON – JUNE MEETING REPORT

On 18th June Sadie Hirst returned to give us a follow up talk to the one she did last year, where she talked about the history of cookery books – ‘Much Ado about Food’. She made the progression from recipes to the material culture i.e. the pots and pans with which to cook and the ‘History of Food’.

She explained that decisions about what you eat, where you buy it, whether you choose to eat meat or be vegetarian or vegan defines ourselves and our cultures. Migrants use their traditions of cooking to help remind themselves of the countries from which they have come.

Sadie began in Neolithic times and took us up to the Tudor/Stewart times.

CAMEO CLUB of KIRKBY on BAIN and ROUGHTON

On the 21st May we saw the return, by popular request, of CATS the Coningsby and Tattershall Strummers Ukulele Band! With three of their players being members of Cameo; Sue Carroll, Sue Schofield and her mum Dinah Campbell, we have a growing connection with the band.

Yet again we had a full house and many visitors, both men and women. A very jolly time was had with lots of singing along, rattling of tambourines and dancing at the back. Band leader, Steve Tullett kept us amused, in between songs, with jokes and cartoons which included derogatory ones about Trump and Brexit! He also stressed that the band was always welcome to new members. The band meets most Mondays at 7.00pm in Coningsby Methodist Hall. Continue reading

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
