Join us on April 4th for An Evening With Bill Ramsey – the last Vulcan Captain. Bill will be talking us through his truly extraordinary career which includes flying the Lancaster and Dakota with the BBMF, four years as Wing Commander with the Red Arrows and so much more.

This is the first of a series of talks called ‘An Evening With…’ which we will be hosting throughout the year. It is not an event you want to miss! The Petwood will be making a donation from tickets sales to Bill’s chosen charity, The People’s Mosquito.

Typhoon talk at the Petwood

In the second instalment of our ‘An Evening With’ events, join us for a talk with Dave Hands from the Hawker Typhoon Restoration Project!

Dave’s connection with the Typhoon stems from his father, who was an engine test engineer with Napier, flying a modified Warwick out of Luton equipped with the Sabre powerplant. He has a history in aviation that stretches back to childhood with his father being Chief flying instructor at the London Gliding Club. Event Details:

Fibre Broadband – the cables are going in!

Image courtesy ChannelBiz UKHaving learned recently from Lincolnshire Broadband Programme Manager Steve Brookes that  “……work is currently on hold because of high build costs…..” imagine my surprise this morning when I saw fast broadband fibre cables being installed in Kirkby on Bain main street. I had a chat with one of the installation crew, and he confirmed that they were installing fibre-to-the-premises cable today. They also kindly allowed me to take a picture, provided they were not in shot:

Cameo club AGM

From Jill Russell

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

Invitation to join the Woodhall Spa Twinning Association

On behalf of Dave Eldridge, WSTA Chairman:

Last year a merry band of Woodhall Spa and district families once again crossed the Channel to spend a long weekend with their French hosts en famille, and plans are now being drawn up for the next return visit by our partners from Roëzé sur Sarthe in May this year.

It seems likely that demand will exceed supply, as there may be more French families wishing to visit us than we have English families offering to welcome them into their homes, so we would be very pleased to hear from anyone in a neighbouring parish such as Kirkby on Bain who would like to join in the fun.
