What’s happening in East Barkwith and Faldingworth

East Barkwith

Gardeners’ visit - As a change from the usual gardening them, members and friends enjoyed an outing to the historic city of York.

The first port of call for many was the Train Museum, before moving on to explore the city and its wealth of history.

As always with trips organised by Les Robinson, there was a scheduled stop off on the return journey for a carvery meal.

The next planned trip is a day out to Norwich on Saturday, November 16, which has been arranged by the coach company for charity.

They provide the coach and driver and ask for a donation of not less than £12 from passengers for the fare, with proceeds shared between Help for Heroes and a support fund for a young stroke victim called Darren.

One of the coaches has been filled from this area and will be picking up at East Barkwith, Newton Close, Wragby and Horncastle.

For information on possible availability of seats, due to any cancellations, contact Les on 01673 857063.

No bingo - Contrary to a recent advert in the parish magazine, bingo evenings are no longer held in the village hall.

The Circle of Paper Crafters meetings are also no longer held in the hall, but now take place at Wragby Methodist Chapel, generally on the second and fourth Friday of the month at 2pm - although this month the dates are November 8 and 29.

New members are always welcome.

60s night - Head back to the 60s at a special Nostalgia Night in the Cross Roads Inn this Saturday, November 9, starting at 8pm.

Entertainment with live music is by ‘WATT-U-C’, 60s style with a twist.

There will also be a picture quiz and a raffle in aid of a defibrillator for the village.

Contact Mike on 01673 858363 for more information if needed.

WI meeting - Leather work will be the topic at the next meeting of the WI, in the village hall on Thursday, November 14, starting at 7.30pm.

Barbara Theairs is the demonstrator and there will be a competition for a small leather article.


Charity country - The October country music evening in the village hall had two specials of the night - firstly a freshly decorated hall, with new curtains, tables and chairs, plus top class entertainment.

Duo Best of Friends, consisting of Steve Chase and Middy, brought the room alive from their first song through to the last of the night.

The three sets, with costume changes for each one, provided an exceptional evening of entertainment, full of vitality, quality vocals and atmosphere - with three encores to round the evening off.

The next music night is this Friday, November 8, when Pete Jones will be providing the live music from 8pm.


Table top - A Christmas table top sale will be held in the Memorial Hall on Saturday, November 23 from 1pm to 4pm.

Tables cost £3 or £5, which will go to the parish church, and then stallholders keep their own proceeds.

For more details and to book a table call 01673 844661.
