Grand record breaking night in the country

COUNTRY NIGHT – The Ludford Gang have broken their record for money raised at a single event at their latest charity music night.

A capacity crowd and additional donations ensured the fantastic amount of £1,420.50 was handed over to nurse Sue Bradley at the special night in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

A great evening of country music was provided by C’Est La Vie, covering all tastes and styles.

The next country night will see Best of Friends, duo Steve Chase and Middy, take to the stage of the village hall on Friday, September 9. Tickets cost £5 on the door.

PRICKLY SUBJECT – For their August meeting, WI members and friends travelled to Authorpe to pay a visit to the hedgehog sanctuary.

The group was given a tour of the extensive facilities at Hedgehog Care and told some of the stories of how the animals had ended up in their care.

Hedgehog Care is funded by donations and the WI had collected towels and tissues to take along with them.

This weekend, the WI will be on duty at the 101 Squadron Reunion providing afternoon tea in the village hall.

The next WI meeting will be on Wednesday, September 7, in the village hall at 7.30pm.

New members are always welcome.
