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!
In response to a question at this year’s Annual Parish Meeting, champion motorcyclist Steve Plater agreed in public that the state of our local roads was a disgrace and potentially a matter of life and death. “Don’t get me started” he said, but encouraged by the positive reaction in the primary school hall, he did just that, criticising Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department’s apparent indifference.
This year’s meeting had got off to a heart-warming start at the Primary School Hall, as a small but excited group of younger children sang songs that many will remember with affection from their own schooldays. Most of the audience joined in, before taking part in a new venture – the village bake-off, scoffing delicious tray bakes and marking them out of ten. The outright winner was Jill Hilton and there was no shortage of scrummy leftovers taken home after the meeting. Continue reading →

Our village book group met on Tuesday afternoon. As we do not have books sent to us in January we decided to discuss our 10 favourite books. It proved to be good fun as people talked about the books they remembered from childhood and from school.
Some people talked about the books that they had won as prizes at Sunday School and books that brought back memories of special times in their lives.
Our book for February is the first book in Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels, My Brilliant Friend.
