News from the villages

East Barkwith

Village fete - The annual village fete was held by kind permission of Richard and Anne Stamp in a field off Louth Road to raise funds for the village hall.

The programme included terrier racing and a dog show, with classes for the dog the judges would like to take home, the dog with the waggiest tail and the best in the show.

Dog agility classes were also running during the afternoon and there were games and competitions, a raffle and a tombola with members of East Barkwith WI serving welcome cups of tea and cakes which they had donated.

The total raised was in the region of £900.


Strawberry teas - Members of the Wragby branch of Disability Lincs were delighted to welcome lots of visitors when the annual afternoon tea with strawberries and cream served with scones and jam was held in the town hall annexe.

There was a constant buzz of chatter and laughter combining to create a very happy social atmosphere.

There were stalls too, to browse and buy from, with the usual tombola and raffle run by the Disability Group members and committee members while the kitchen staff were kept busy serving up the fresh cream teas.

Treasurer Clive Riley was delighted to announce £355.50 had been raised thanks to all who gave their support.

The money will go towards the cost of hiring a coach to take the members on their next monthly outing.

Flowers - Attractive flower tubs set on the surrounding railings are helping brighten up the Market Place after being planted by Carole Watts and Eileen Barry, the Wragby Plant Minders.

They had grown on and potted up the plants ready for display and watering of the arrangements is now a regular necessity to ensure the flowers flourish and can be enjoyed by residents and visitors during the summer months.

They would appreciate some help with the daily watering and Carole or Eileen would be very pleased to hear from any willing volunteers .

Village market - The next village market in the town hall, organised by Viv Moss, takes place this Sunday, August 4, with doors open to customers from 10am until 2pm.

Go along to browse and buy from the variety of stalls, with goods including fresh produce, gift ware and home made goods.

Entrance to the hall is free for shoppers and Carole’s Cafe will be open in the annex.

Summer Fete - The Annual Summer Fete held at the Town Hall raised approximately £950 to support funding raising for All Saints Church.

The Saxilby Youth band provided entertainment and visitors were able to browse the many stalls and attractions.


Fly away success - Saturday’s coffee morning hosted by Colin and Barbara White at their Louth Road home, raised £304 for the air ambulance.

Grateful thanks go to all who supported the event.
