FPS - Twenty members of Hundleby Footpath Preservation Society travelled to Swaby on a dull Sunday morning on November 4.

Quickly crossing the A16 a stile led over a field to the side road through the small secluded hamlet.

A short walk led through an attractive garden to the entrance to the tree lined Swaby Valley.

Following the wood, the group squelched along the signed field side path to the road near Belleau Bridge.

From there it was over fields to the village of Belleau, with its unusual dovecote. A lane from here took the group to a signed path, over fields downhill to Swaby, ending through a tree lined tunnel.

The rain which had been threatening to start arrived as the return to the cars was completed.

Members should remember to order their lunch for December 2 at JJ’s with Edward and Jayne. Meet at North Beck Lane at 10.30am. Note the later start time.

DANCING - The ‘Dancing for fun’ group was begun in Hundleby Parish Rooms over five years ago by Ewan and Kate Lond.

As numbers grew it now meets in Toynton All Saints Village hall on Tuesdays.

On October 30, witches and other strange beings arrived in appropriate outfits for the Halloween celebrations.

Music was provided by an accomplished organist, Joanne Naulls and her ‘Roadie’ father, Peter, who judged the costumes. Jean Todd, won the ladies’ prize, and John Raithby the men’s.

Everyone was congratulated on the efforts made for such a happy successful event. The class is now run by Ewan and Patrick Lond with Brenda and Jean.
