What’s happening around the village
Bingo - A total of £142.50 was raised for the town hall refurbishment fund at the recent bingo.
Thanks were extended to everyone who attended and gave their support while enjoying a happy social evening.
WI - Members spent a lovely social evening out in Louth recently, beginning with an out-of-hours visit to M & Co to browse the latest fashions.
The staff opened the shop and welcomed the party, who had a wonderful time trying on their choices of outfits and holding their own impromptu fashion parade which everyone enjoyed.
Having made their purchases, members moved on to Wetherspoons to continue their evening with a meal together.
Darts champions - Scott and Zara, the newly-appointed landlords at the Turnor Arms, provided the hospitality for members of the Witham group of WIs when they met for their annual fun darts evening.
While numbers were lower than usual, the players and their respective supporters from the Bardney, East Barkwith and Wragby branches enjoyed the social get together.
Names were drawn for the doubles partners and, at the end of the knockout tournament, Margaret Kane, president of Wragby WI, and Margaret Wright, of Bardney WI, were declared the winning pair and received the group trophy.
Vicky James, secretary of Wragby WI, notched up the highest score and was rewarded with a box of jelly babies.
Verges in bloom - Residents and visitors to Wragby will have plenty of colour to cheer them through the dark, cold winter months as members of the Wragby Community Gardening Club are to be out and about in the coming weeks continuing with the verge bulb planting scheme which they launched last year.
A further 2,000 crocus bulbs have been purchased to add to the initial 1,000 planted last year.
The planted area stretches from the almshouses to All Saints’ Church, and the plan is to complete planting on all the approach roads so that anyone travelling into or out of Wragby will be greeted with glorious colour once they are in bloom.
In addition, a supply of daffodil bulbs have been purchased and these are to be planted around the Wragby pictorial signs.
Disability Lincs - Joyce Knight, a member of the Wragby branch of Disability Lincs social group, celebrated her 90th birthday a day early with her friends at the Tuesday morning meeting recently.
Still very active, Joyce arrived with sausage rolls she had baked that morning, plus trays of sandwiches and plum bread, providing a mini feast for everyone as a change from the usual coffee and biscuits they enjoy usually each third Tuesday of the month.
She invited all the members and helpers to tuck in, and the food, in particular the sausage rolls, very soon disappeared as everyone enjoyed celebrating with Joyce before drinking a toast to her with the sparkling juice she also provided.
A rousing chorus of Happy Birthday was sung before the meeting ended and best wishes were extended as Joyce went home to continue celebrating her big day with her family and other friends later in the week.
The year’s programme ended yesterday, when members and friends travelled to Brigg Garden Centre for their annual Christmas lunch.
Help for Heroes - Margaret Kane organises a used books and jigsaws stall at each of the monthly family bingos in the town hall in aid of Help for Heroes.
The amount builds up month by month and £205 is the latest amount which will be forwarded to the charity, with thanks to all.
