Fairtrade, Rainbows, pancakes and more.

Fairtrade Fortnight - In 2015 “Fairtrade Fortnight” will be on a mission to ask shoppers and businesses to choose products that do change lives.

Wragby will be joining forces with the rest of the country to share stories from the people who grow Fairtrade products and to remind everyone of the dramatic difference it makes.

Wragby will be holding two coffee mornings at the Wragby Library and Community Centre on Wednesday February 25 and Friday February 27 from 10am to 1pm.

There will be Fairtrade food and crafts stalls, plus cakes made from local and Fairtrade ingredients.

Wragby Parish Pancake Race: Start training to take part in the Wragby Parish Pancake Race on Sunday March 1.

This annual event will start at 11.30am on Dove Park (next door to All Saints Church).

All you need to take along is your frying pan – pancakes will be provided, and the classes are for Under 5s; under 11s; under 54s and open.

Jumble sale - There will be a jumble sale at Wragby Town Hall on Saturday March 14 starting at 2pm.

Donations of jumble; cakes; raffle prizes and tombola items will be appreciated as will volunteers who wish to help out on the day. Please contact Brenda Bodily on 01673 857042.

Wragby Community Group – Due to a generous grant from the parish council, members of the Wragby Community Group are able to present a free concert and film on Saturday March 21 starting at 3pm at the Town Hall.

The Bardney Silver Sounds Band will play a selection of music including themes from the movies – which will be followed by the showing of the film “Brassed Off”.

While this is a free event, tickets should be obtained in advance and will be available from the library during volunteer opening hours on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10am to 1pm or from Barbara Bartlett on 01673 857480.

1st Wragby Rainbows - Recently, members of the 1st Wragby Rainbows went along to the local fire station to learn about fire safety.

They were made very welcome and the evening began with the necessary information for the girls in the event of the crew getting a “shout”.

From then on firefighter Kathy Dunn spoke to the girls about fire safety and safety in the home.

The girls, aged 5–7, came up with some excellent questions showing they were really listening and taking on board safety in the home.

Then it was time to go outside and divide into two groups, with the four firefighters on duty, they had time to see the fire appliance, the equipment and climb on board the engines while the other group were invited to try their hand at using the water hoses before swopping over.

Despite being a cold night everyone had a great time with no complaints about getting a bit wet.

The evening concluded with a chip supper before parents arrived to collect the girls who had been given books and leaflets to take home.
