JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS - The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations continued on Saturday, June 16 with a launch party for the exhibition ‘All Our Yesterdays’.
The exhibition comprised of memorabilia and accounts written by villagers covering the years from 1930s to the present day.
Also included were newspaper reports and features from magazines of the Royal family.
Villagers had delved into the attic and found, among other things, toys, children’s comics and coins from the Queen’s reign.
Those present were given an inscribed glass filled with wine as a souvenir. Canapes were also served. The raffle of commemorative items was well patronised.
Sunday saw a steady stream of visitors through the afternoon and evening.
On Monday many returned for the change of exhibits to photographs of villagers and events from the millennium and before.
What memories they evoked and much reminiscing! Recalling names was quite a challenge. The exhibition was collated and overseen by John and Margaret Spalding and Malcolm and Jenny Williams, who gratefully acknowledge all the contributions and unstinting help they have received which was necessary to put on such an event.
CHURCH FETE - The annual Summer Fete will take place on Saturday, July 14 in St Mary’s Church and the Parish Rooms, Church Lane from 2pm to 4pm.
There will be the usual cake stall, tombola, games, raffle and other stalls. Come and meet your friends.
WI - Twenty two members travelled to Sutton on Sea on a rather cold and
blustery evening on Monday, June 11 to visit Marigold’s Garden.
A warm welcome was given by Stephanie Lee and her husband, who showed the group round their garden packed with a huge variety of well known and more unusual plants.
It appears to be a garden for all seasons and members took on board many new ideas for their own places.
Many promised to return when summer arrives. But warming hot drinks were enjoyed and a short WI meeting held at the conclusion of the tour.
F.P.S. - On Wednesday, June 20, members met on a lovely summer’s evening at the Green Lane Brinkhill for the start of a walk which took them over fields, up hill to the Ulceby Cross Road.
A short distance on this led to a downhill track with wide views of the rolling countryside.
An old bridleway finishes at Driby, and other paths then led over fields back to Brinkhill by the church and then back to the cars, where 15 people enjoyed one of the few fine, warm evenings of this June.
