And what a lot is going on.....

Gardeners’ visit - There was a full coach for the Malvern Flower Show trip.

Friends from the Nettleham Gardeners joined the party as usual, together with other people for this popular outing.

The weather was perfect and all the passengers remarked on the interesting journey across beautiful countryside, which was an added extra to the day.

With no hold ups, and just a brief comfort stop, they had time to enjoy the show where there was lots to see.

Thanks were expressed to Carole Watts who organised the trip and the support of the friendly and helpful driver was also acknowledged as all returned after a very successful and happy outing.

Swimming Club sale - Crowds gathered at the Town Hall for a further very successful jumble sale when the Wragby and District Swimming Club organised their autumn event and raised almost £500 thanks to everyone who gave their support.

There was an abundance of excellent jumble and the surplus was sold on for recycling and refurbishing.

The landlord of the Turnor Arms is to host the club’s next fund raising event, which is a quiz night on Saturday, November 23, starting at 7pm.

The cost is £5 for a team of up to four members and everyone is invited to go along for a fun night out while also supporting the local swimming pool.

They’re off - Members of the Wragby Scout and Guide H/Q Committee, looking for a new fundraising project, held a race night in the Town Hall.

Around 80 people attended and all enjoyed the eight horse races and one pig race.

The races were sponsored by local firms, and horses by people attending, with the winners receiving wine and chocolates.

Committee members provided supper of soup, ploughman’s, and desserts, and each of the six units supplied raffle prizes in the form of hampers.

The evening was a massive success and raised £980 for the funds, which will go to carry out repairs on the building.

Feedback from the evening was very positive and thanks are expressed to all who attended and gave their support.

Supper Club -During the autumn and winter months the members of the group do not normally venture very far.

However, in November, they have a visit to The Observatory in Lincoln and, for obvious reasons, have to go when it is dark.

To book call Ann Lambert on 01673 857515 asap, as places for the visit are limited.

Friday December 20 will be party night at The Buzz Stop in Rand.

This is a ticket only event, so get your now from Sue Johnson on 01673 858265.

For more information on the Supper Club, contact either Lawrie Lambert on 01673 857515 or Mo Fricke on 01673 858334.

Visitors and new members are always made very welcome.

Messy Church - This is held in the Methodist Church on the second Thursday of every month from 3.15pm.

It is an exciting venture with games, crafts and refreshments and the next one will be on Thursday, November 14, when the group will be looking forward to advent and preparing decorations for the Christmas tree to be displayed in the Doctor’s surgery.

Sessions are open to children of all ages, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

There is no charge but donations are always welcome.

Seasonal shopping - The Town Hall will be the venue for this year’s Christmas Shopping Evening on Wednesday, November 6.

This event has proved to be very popular over the last two years and this year should be as good, if not better, as there will be more than 20 retailers with a massive range of items to view and buy.

There will also be a raffle, bottle and jar tombola, and refreshments available throughout the event, which runs from 6pm.

Admission is free.

Christmas Flower Arranging - an afternoon of Christmas Flower Arranging will be held in the Methodist Church on Friday, November 22, starting at 2pm.

Running the session will be Lorna Curtis and Angela Maxwell of the Horncastle and Woodhall Spa Flower Clubs.

Admission is £4 per person, including refreshments, and there will also be a raffle and sales table.

Coffee morning and lunches - The Methodist Church hosts a Christmas coffee morning and lunches event on Saturday, December 14, from 10.30am to 1.30pm.

Seasonal goods, raffle and tombola will all be available and everyone is very welcome to attend and join in.
