FARMERS MARKET AND CRAFT FAIR – Wragby Town Hall will be a hive of activity on Sunday, March 4, when it will be filled with more than 20 stalls at the first of what is planned to be a monthly farmer’s market and craft fair.

It will run from 10am and 2pm and proceeds are for the town hall play park fund, as refurbishment and/or replacement of the equipment is needed to ensure the young people of Wragby have a safe, exciting place to play out of doors.

ANNUAL DINNER – The Turnor Arms in Wragby Market Place was the venue for this year’s Wragby WI annual dinner.

New hosts Shona and Perry gave the party a warm welcome as they tucked into the delicious carvery meal.

The party of 28 members sat back and relaxed as they enjoyed being serenaded by David St Paul, Wragby’s own popular vocalist.

Songs made famous by Neil Diamond and Tom Jones were included in his selection of musical entertainment and he was also happy to oblige with requests.

Margaret Kane, the president of the WI, thanked Shona and Perry for the hospitality and David for his music, which brought the excellent evening out to an end.

FAMILY BINGO – David Dunbar was on duty calling the lucky numbers at the monthly Saturday Night Family Bingo session in Wragby Town Hall, and cards were checked by Margaret Kane and Kathy Lowe.

£116.25 was raised for the kitchen refurbishing fund despite the attendance being lower than usual, and all were thanked for their support at what are always happy social family evenings.

Helen White was door steward and bingo tickets were sold by Margaret Kane, Linda King, Vicky James and Thelma Humberstone and Jean Cheetham ran the raffle.

John Kane was in charge of the tombola, and Linda King and Margaret Kane served the refreshments during the interval, with cups of tea and coffee and soft drinks for the children served from the kitchen by Pat Steel, Dorothy Warr and Tressa Machin.

NEW ZUMBA CLASSES – Party yourself into shape at the Latin-inspired, easy-to-follow, calorie-burning, dance fitness party.

The new Zumba classes have taken off in Wragby Sports Hall on Monday evenings from 7pm-8pm and are led by Deborah Hickson, a licensed Zumba instructor.

CHAPEL OPEN – The members of Wragby Methodist Chapel are opening the doors to all for an informal get-together on Friday, March 9 from 10am-11.30am.

All are welcome to call in for a chat, and as it is also a drop-in centre for the charity Tools for Self Reliance anyone who has any unused or unwanted tools or items of haberdashery can take them along and donate them to the cause.
