CAMEO Club – Kirkby on Bain
On 21st February Dr and Mrs Duke-Cox gave us a most delightful talk and presentation on ‘The Petwood Hotel’ which took us back to before the Second World War – the very early stages, when it was built as a very large bungalow for Sir John Blundell Maples’ daughter, Grace.
The slides showed us the bungalow as it was and explained how it was sold to be a hotel. We were taken on the journey from the early stages of building and then made even larger to be the Petwood Hotel. The talk also gave us a brief history of the family. We are most grateful for Dr and Mrs Duke-Cox’s time and presentation and hope they will return next year to continue the story. Continue reading

From Margaret Dewrance:
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.
