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 – AGM – 15th Jan
Secretary Maura Dormer went through the minutes from last AGM and then described the very successful, enjoyable programme from 2018. Treasurer Rose Kimberley went through the accounts and fed back how well our charity fund-raising had done, the total amount raised being: £476.32. It was agreed £350 of this to go to our 2018 charity, RNLI Skegness, and £100 initial donation to our 2019 charity. The remainder to go towards expenses to set up this year e.g. Smartie tubes.
Sue Carroll’s 50/50 draw had been a success, as had the ‘fill the Smartie tubes’. As usual the raffle continued to be a good fund-raiser. The best attended meet had been the Ukulele night with many guests attending, both men and women. Continue reading
CAMEO REPORT AUG/SEPT MEETINGS 2018
Due to our August speaker having to postpone till next year, September ‘s programme was brought forward so Dinah Ward came to give us ‘Decorating and Eating Cupcakes’ in August which went down deliciously well with all.
To fill the gap in September Misty happily came along to set us a quiz challenge which was varied and stretched us to the full. As last year the general knowledge quiz made an interesting change to the normal speaker and allowed all our competitive instincts to surface in teams of 4/5. Results: Continue reading
