History on agenda for Rase heritage

A LOOK into Middle Rasen’s history was on the agenda for Rase Heritage Society.

Taking an evening stroll through the village, highlights of the village’s heritage were pointed out by Mal Jones, Hazel Barnard and Caroline Foster.

Starting at the parish church, the walk also looked at the old church yard, sites of former chapels and other buildings of note.

The evening was rounded off with refreshments in the Methodist Chapel, which itself is celebrating its centenary this year.

The August meeting will be held in Market Rasen Library on Thursday August 11 at 7.30pm.

The speaker will be local historian and author Sue Allan on Lady Rose Hickman of Gainsborough Old Hall.

Non-members are welcome at £2 per visitor.
