WI members from across the Market Rasen and Caistor area came together in Nettleton Village Hall for the Northwold Group meeting to hear Dave Newman reveal Life in a Victorian Garden.
And his enthusiasm for the subject shone through as he spoke about the people employed to care for the gardens and the methods used to combat ‘unwanted visitors’.
The competition for ‘Victoriana on a tea plate’ was won by North Kelsey WI.
The group is organising a trip to Harrogate on Friday September 4.
Open to members and non-members alike, the coach trip can be used to visit the WI Centennial Fair in the Harrogate International Centre or to spend a day in the spa town itself.
The coach will be picking up at Middle Rasen, Market Rasen and Holton le Moor.
