Trees, prayers and Rainbows

Rainbows - The girls made a start on making their Christmas cakes at the recent meeting, with each one taking a turn in stirring the mixture and making sure it was all in the big cake tin ready to go in the oven.

Next week, they will be able to cut it into squares and do their individual marzipan.

At the close of the meeting, three new Rainbows made their promise - Evie Kerry, Faye Smith and Imogen Spencer.

After the Christmas break, there will be a few places available fat Rainbows; contact

Andrea Ward on 01673 858302.

Prayer tree - From the beginning of December, there will be a decorated Christmas tree in Wragby Surgery provided by Methodist Church members, where people will have an opportunity to write a label for something or someone they care about and add it to the tree.

On Christmas Eve, the tree will be taken to All Saints Church for the Crib Service and Midnight Communion.

Some of the prayer requests will also be taken to the Methodist Church for the Christmas morning service.

Disability Lincs - The Wragby branch autumn coffee morning was held in the town hall recently when £318 was raised thanks to everyone who attended and gave their support.

Scouts and guides HQ - After three years as chairman, Jon Sadler gave his last report.

He extended thanks to those who had turned out for the AGM, sadly noting no parents had come forward to give their support, once again.

He said he had enjoyed his three years, thanked everyone for their time and support and hoped it would continue to flourish.

The new chairman is Andrea Ward.

The post of secretary is vacant and it is hoped someone will come forward at the next meeting.

Concerns were raised about people using the car park to leave their cars and walk dogs and leave general rubbish – but this situation is to be resolved shortly.

Tree Festival - Over the weekend of December 13 and 14, the Methodist Church will hold its biennial Charity Christmas Tree Festival.

As they will be celebrating 120 years of worship in the current building, they hope to have at least 120 trees of various sizes on display.

There will be a raffle and seasonal stalls on the Saturday and refreshments will be served throughout.

There will be entertainment too.

On the Saturday, children from the primary school will be singing at 11am, followed by the Mid Lincolnshire Circuit Singers at 3.30pm.

And on the Sunday, there will be a Cafe style worship at 10.30am, the Wragby Handbell Ringers will play from 12

noon and The Broadbent Singers will perform at about 3.30pm.

Donations may be made to the various charities supported by the local charities providing the trees.
