Supper club - Members and friends enjoyed an evening outing to Thorpe Camp at Tattershall Thorpe.

The event was well supported and enjoyed by all.

Following an introductory talk, the group wandered round at their leisure, browsing the exhibits and reading the history of the site.

Family Bingo -Numbers were lower than usual but the monthly Saturday Night Family Bingo in the town hall was still very successful.

And those who did attend enjoyed a happy social evening while helping to raise £87.70 for the town hall renewals fund in addition to £56 for Help for Heroes with the popular charity tombola.

Organiser Margaret Kane was pleased to announce a further £148 has now been forwarded to Help for Heroes.

Healthy exercise - A programme of taking walks in the countryside was launched at the WI following a challenge laid down by the National Federation in Jubilee Year.

And the benefit of the extra exercise has encouraged everyone to keep walking together, which has proved a valuable extra to their summer programme.

A recent walk followed public footpaths to Wire Hill, where former member Jean Tring provided unexpected hospitality, with refreshments in her lovely garden, and a tour the converted old farm buildings.

A repeat of previous visits to Bardney was also on the agenda and the more active were accompanied by Audrey Saul on her bicycle on a route around Wragby, while there was a shorter walking route for the less able.

Community gardeners - For their first full day’s outing of the season, the club visited Wentworth Woodhouse Garden Centre and Wentworth Castle Gardens.

All were able to enjoy a lovely afternoon out of doors exploring the beautiful gardens, with the added advantage of a guided tour.

Whist - Results of the drive in the town hall were: ladies - 1 Mrs S Collins, 2 Mrs J Woodthorpe, 3 Mrs M Abelwhite and Mrs P Brammer; gents - 1 Mrs M Treadwell, 2 Mrs A Hodgson, 3 Mr J Lloyd; lowers second half - Mrs L Swift and Mrs R Wright; most 3s - Mr E Taylor; miniature - Mr M Swift & Miss E Hotchin.
