WI, Bells and Burns

WI - At the January meeting president Margaret Kane was pleased to report a total of £93.67 had been forwarded to Macmillan Nurses at Louth, from donations at the Methodist Church biennial Christmas Tree Festival, where the WI had made a Christmas Card Tree.

Future outings include visits to the theatre; the federation’s annual council meeting in Skegness and the centenary celebrations.

The guest speaker at the meeting was David Shepherdson who spoke of the life of 
Coco Chanel.

The February meeting will be entitled A Lincolnshire Evening and will start at 7pm, when there will be food plus entertainment - from Stepping Stones.

Wragby Handbell Ringers - 2015 began for the ringers when they were invited to play at the East Barkwith Gardeners Club on Friday, January 23.

They were made very welcome and gave a wide variety of music before getting some of the gardeners to have a go.

Burns Night Supper - Wragby Town Hall was the venue for the second Burn’s Night Supper, organised by members of All Saints Church.

It was virtually a sell out and enjoyed by everyone.

Following the traditional “address the haggis” the supper was served amid background bagpipe music .

Toasts were made to the lads and lassies, followed by readings of Burn’s works and the Rev Mark Holden’s quiz, relevant to Scotland - never easy, but one table scored 9 out of 10, but lost two points as two members on the table were Scottish.
