Peace lilies free at Courtlands

From Jill Hilton, Courtlands

Yesterday I was repotting my Peace Lilies and I have 3 to give away. I could leave them on a table at the end of the drive, they would of course, be free to a good home!

Peace Lilies are indoor plants and these have been raised in the peace of Courtlands!

Cameo Report | January 2020

CAMEO CLUB of Kirkby on Bain and Roughton

Unfortunately, Julie Baker from SANDS was unable to attend due to being called away at late notice to a conference. It has been arranged that she will come to the 17th March meeting to collect our donation and knitted memory blankets before our AGM.

Thus, our January meeting had more time to spend on playing Bingo! We had a really jolly time playing a series of games. It was a big learning curve for some of us while others were Bingo veterans!!! Louise Roberts was our caller and learnt the ropes really quickly and did a sterling job. The evening was a great success and quite a change from having a speaker.        Continue reading

CAMEO CLUB: new members welcome

CAMEO CLUB 2020

What does CAMEO stand for?  Come And Meet Every One

What is it? A get-together of folks of all ages from surrounding areas:  Kirkby on Bain, Roughton, Haltham, Mareham Le Fen and more.

Why? A chance for newcomers to the area to meet others nearby and regulars to share and talk and give support when needed. We collect for a different chosen charity each year, such as 2019 SANDS  –  a group supporting those families experiencing neo-natal and still-born deaths. In memory Wren Plume-Russell 1/1/19                   Continue reading

Cameo club: Christmas Jolly 2019

19th November 2019

A lovely evening was spent at our Christmas Jolly, eating our fill of turkey with all the trimmings, Christmas pud/strawberry pavlova, cheese and biscuits, mince pies, coffee/tea and after eight mints. Very scrumptious it was too with the caterers doing us proud! It might seem to be a bit early for festive celebrations but, as we do not meet in December, it was the last opportunity for us to get together before the New Year! There were plenty of prizes for the raffles and Sue Carroll set us a very challenging Christmas themed quiz which certainly taxed our brain cells!!             Continue reading

A secret no more

Last June twelve Kirkby on Bain residents entered a competition to name the hitherto nameless path connecting the primary school to the Main Street. Once all entries were in, a vote was held and the winning entry was The Secret Path, suggested by Sue Carroll.  The Parish Council duly commissioned signs, now installed at either end of the footpath, which will be officially opened this Friday at 3.15pm, at the school end in Wharf Lane. All welcome.
