Kirkby on Bain CAMEO Club enjoyed an outing to Anwick Garden Centre last month. Many thanks to the staff there who showed us around the centre and then kindly answered many questions and queries over tea and biscuits, the perfect way to garden!! A very enjoyable evening.
We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the beginning of this month with an afternoon tea party in the gardens of one of our members, Maureen Jordan. We were so lucky to have a beautiful day and were able to sit in the garden and appreciate an English summer afternoon. Our group reformed in 1992 after some years of not meeting. We were fortunate to have some of the original members from 1992 attend, many of whom are still active in the group. Chairperson, Sue Wright gave a short speech looking back over the years, the group have had many exciting trips and speakers and have donated over £5,500 to various charities over the 25 years. Many thanks to Maureen and her husband Keith for all of their work and also to Sue Kind who provided an amazing afternoon tea.
We next meet on Tuesday 18th July at 8pm in Roughton Village Hall. Our speaker will be telling us of Chatsworth, past and present. Visitors and new members are very welcome – please either just come along or call me for more details.
The next Meeting of the Council will be held on Thursday July 6th in the Primary School Hall, Wharf Lane, Kirkby on Bain, starting at 7.00 pm. As usual we will start with a public forum so if you would like to discuss any local matter you are concerned about, please do come along and have your say!

From Katie-Louise Green, SO Festival Coordinator for Magna Vitae:
Cake Fest will be showcased at SO Festival on Sunday 2nd July. It’s basically a 100 square metre edible map of East Lindsey.
People are coming forward to bake landmarks of East Lindsey, to be placed on the map. Landmarks such as The Lancaster and Tattershall Castle will be created. There are hundreds of villages and churches, and I would absolutely love having a number of cake churches created for the map. Would Kirkby on Bain like to be involved? Continue reading →
As part of the Horncastle Arts and Music festival, this concert offers you a varied programme including Schubert’s Mass in G, Elgar’s “From the Bavarian Highlands” and a selection of Victorian Music. It’s at St. Mary’s Church, Horncastle, starting 7.30pm on Saturday May 13th. There will be a retiring collection in aid of the Air Ambulance.
Last year the Kirkby on Bain Annual Parish Meeting attracted a record number of local people and invited guests, filling the primary school hall in Wharf Lane almost to capacity. Martin, Penny and I have been busy since then planning this year’s event, now called the annual village meeting, scheduled for May 18th, starting at 6.30 pm.
Once again children from the primary school will be top of the bill and they are working right now on their opening routine. The details are a secret of course but I have an idea that music might be involved.
Other highlights will include a bake-off, a local photographic display, an open forum, refreshments and guest presentations, including a keynoteaddress by international motorcycling champion and local hero Steve Plater.
Let’s fill that hall once again! Download full details
