You may have noticed we aren’t seeing so much of our Postman Ian Ranyard these days.
Yes, he has had some annual leave recently. However, after 35 years service on his round that includes Kirkby on Bain and Roughton, Ian has decided to go part-time, so instead of doing 5 days a week he has cut down to 3 days and no doubt earned Brownie points from his better half in the process.
It’s good news that he is not retiring altogether. Not only can he continue to give us all the fantastic service we have had from him over the years, but also he can pass on the peculiarities of our round to his colleague, who will be covering the other two days of the week. Ian has always gone above and beyond in his postal duties for us, which has been much appreciated.
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 →
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 →
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.
