Tea Dance

On Wednesday the 8th May the weather outside was miserable, cold and wet but inside the Coronation Hall in Woodhall Spa everyone was enjoying an afternoon of dancing and tea and cakes. It was East Lindsey Heart Support Group’s annual Tea Dance and 70 people attended. Lots of lovely cakes , sandwiches and of course scones, along with plenty of dancing provided by ‘Just Colin’. We would like to thank Colin for arranging the music and dancing, everyone who made the delicious cakes and everyone who brought the raffle prizes. On the afternoon we made a profit of £290, this will help with the running of the group.

Last Walk of 2018 and dinner.

On Sunday the 16th December our walking group had our last walk of the year at Sutton On Sea on a lovely bright and sunny day. We followed the walk with a meal at the Sutton On Sea Social Club where 30 of us enjoyed a delicious meal. After the meal Heather and Kath presented Carol & Ernie with a gift from all the members of the heart support group and cardiac team for all their hard work during the year. Carol & Ernie would like to thank everyone and will use the money for a weekend away in the spring. We would also like to thank all the staff of the Sutton On Sea Social club for making us so welcome.

Christmas dinner

It was a wet and dismal evening but that didn’t stop members of the heart support group turning out for our annual Christmas dinner at the Admiral Rodney in Horncastle. It was a good evening, good food and good company once again. Some of us even managed to have a few dances including doing the Hockey Poky!! Thanks to the management and staff for all their hard work.

York Trip

Wednesday the 28th November saw the group have their last day trip out for this year. We went to the St Nicolas Christmas fair at York. Despite the weather forecast it managed to stay fine during the day and it was only when we were making our way back to the coach did the rain arrive, and we all got somewhat wet (drowned rats came to mind). Despite this everyone had a good day and enjoyed themselves , looking forward to the trips in 2019.

Spilsby Show

On Friday the 26th October Ernie & Carol and Maureen & Geoff were invited to the Spilsby Show Presentation Evening where the Spilsby Show committee hand out donations to local charities from money raised at the Spilsby Show. Our group were very fortunate to receive a donation once again. This will help with the running costs of the group so they can continue to support heart patients in the East Lindsey Area.

A big thank you to all the Spilsby Show committee.
