On September 3, the Mareham Le Fen Garden Club will be hosting a talk given by Richard Pullen entitled “The Landships of Lincoln”.

The talk will highlight the efforts by members of staff from William Foster of Lincoln to develop the First World War tank.

Following the talk, there will be a break for refreshments and raffle draw and then a showing of the Tin Hat Production short film entitled “Fray Bentos”.

This film commemorates a famous tank whose occupants were awarded a number of medals for gallantry during the war.

The event will be held in the Mareham Le Fen Village Hall, which in is believed to be a relic from the Belton House Machine Gun Corp, set up to train the men before sending them to the front.

Entry is £2 per head. The hall has a capacity of 100 and seats can be booked by calling 01507 568433.
