Family bingo - David Dunbar was caller at the recent Saturday Night Family Bingo session organised by Margaret Kane on behalf of Wragby Women’s Institute and John Kane ran the very popular prize tombola which helped boost the amount raised for the Town Hall Refurbishing Fund to £172.

Pies and puds - A change of menu proved to be very popular with the members of Wragby WI at their annual new year dinner in the Turnor Arms, when they had a wonderful variety of pies to choose from instead of the traditional festive food.

And the entertainment provided for the WI by the Katrione Duo was enjoyed not just by the party, but by everyone in the pub.

At their January meeting, John Edwards was guest speaker for the night.

He is well-known for his outstanding collection of the history of Wragby through his photograph collection.

And it doesn’t seem to matter how many times people have seen the photos, there are always some new ones and everyone enjoyed seeing old friends, family, sadly many who not around anymore but memories of those happy times remain.

It was also a chance to see the history of Wragby through how buildings have changed - some have gone to make way for further development.

Members were asked to sign a birthday card for Flo Shepherd who was celebrating her 96 birthday.

Everyone is now looking forward to the annual meal at The Turnor’s and the 70th birthday of the Wragby WI meal, plus entertainment, in February.

Competition winners for an old item were: 1 Dorothy Warr, 2 M Moore, 3 A Saul.

And for the flower of the month: 1 Sheila Emmons, 2 M Morre, 3 C Scourfield.
