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 →

This annual market will be taking place on Sunday 9th December from 11 am to 4 pm. The High Street will be closed and lined with Christmas themed craft stalls, artisan manufacturers, and delicious food suppliers.
Musicians will perform for your entertainment and Father Christmas will be in his grotto, and the organisers are busy arranging amazing street entertainment. You can come along just to enjoy the music if you so wish, but they are hoping that you will be enticed by the smell of freshly cooked ostrich burgers, distracted by cheeses, or completely waylaid by naughty sweets.

This year’s Christmas Fayre takes place on Friday 7th December in Station Road and The Broadway from 6.00 to 9.00 pm. All the traditional activities and features established over the years will be there and the street will be packed with stalls and activities from clubs, craftsmen and local organisations.
