Annual Village Meeting: Have your say and have some fun

Featured

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 speakers.

Let’s fill that hall once again!
