Spilsby Show Presentation

On Friday the 27th October Ernie & Carol and Maureen & Geoff were invited to the Spilsby Show Presentation Evening, where the Spilsby Show committee hand out awards to local charities from money they made 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. A big thank you to all the Spilsby Show Committee.

Some members of the group were at Burgh Le Marsh on Monday 9th October to receive a cheque for £900 from Martin Brown. This was raised from the Big Night Out which was at Mr Fipps Circus. A big thank you to Martin and all involved. This money will help to keep the Heart Support Group going for heart patients in the East Lindsey Area.

Hull

On Wednesday the 13th September we had our last coach trip of the year. A little concerned as the weather prediction for the day was high winds & rain and a possibility of the Humber Bridge being closed but it was reopened early that morning and luckily the weather was good to us again. We were very pleased to have our own guide in Peter who comes from Hull and he gave us a wonderful talking walk about the old part of Hull of which everyone enjoyed. Now looking forward to 2018 and more trips.
