CAMEO CLUB of KIRKBY on BAIN and ROUGHTON – 16th JULY REPORT

Misty Culpin returned to set our teams some challenging questions in our Fun Quiz! It was a very close run thing with two teams finishing with the same score, each gaining 52 points. This was the first time a tie break had ever been required so Misty had to come up with a quick question.

The winners!

Unfortunately, neither team knew the answer to Prince Charles’ full name. It then had to go to a super tie break, a bit like the world cup cricket! The Try Hards just pipped The Unforgettables to the answer to the question: ‘Who is fifth in line to the throne?’ Answer: Louis!

Thanks go to Misty for setting us such varied brain teasers!            Continue reading

CAMEO CLUB of KIRKBY on BAIN and ROUGHTON

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

Cameo Club of Kirkby on Bain and Roughton – April 16th Meeting

At the start we wished our Chair, Carmita, well after her recent illness. Our deputy chair, Sue Bruzas, requested we sign a card to give her to show our support. We have also received a card from SANDS, our charity this year, thanking us for the contribution given to them so far.

We then had a first for our club! Instead of a talk we had Rachel Crooks from ‘Dance Fuzion’ lead us in an exercise session to music. Members varied in age and abilities but Rachel led us through a series of exercises where we could sit or stand if preferred and she sympathetically encouraged us to put as much effort in as we wished or of which we were capable!

We exercised arms, legs, hips, thighs, tummies, core etc with ever more increasing speed and need for co-ordination. We had a good laugh and a very enjoyable time was had by all. We discovered some parts of our bodies which we probably had forgotten we had! The overall message was that at whatever age exercise is good and very necessary.          Continue reading

CAMEO CLUB OF KIRKBY ON BAIN AND ROUGHTON- July Meeting

On 17th July Sadie Hirst from Woodhall Spa gave us a very interesting talk called ‘Off the Beeton Track’ Vintage Cook Books. Being involved in the well known butcher’s shop in Woodhall she felt her long interest in cook books sat very comfortably with the shop and the re-creation of recipes from the books she has been collecting over the last twelve years. She feels baking is ‘in her blood’. She said that cookery books speak much more than just the recipes but that she has found all sorts of interesting items within the pages detailing often the life history of the person who owned them and often contained a social record of the time.                          Continue reading

Cameo club: May 2018 report

From reporter Jill Russell

On Tuesday 19th June speaker Christine Chapman gave us a very interesting talk on ‘Lincolnshire Ladies and the Vote’. 2018 being the centenary of the gaining of women’s suffrage, this was a very relevant subject and Christine added to the interest by naming women activists in the Lincolnshire area.

The suffragette colours were Green, White and Violet and Christine pointed out that these initials could stand for Give Women Votes.

She was keen say that these were real women who believed that men and women should be given the same opportunities. However, in 1832 only one in seven men even had the chance or took the opportunity to vote themselves. The fight for women’s suffrage took place with the terrible backdrop of the Great War where women took on roles vacated by the fighting men. Continue reading
