Once again we are on the move on a lovely sunny day across the Humber Bridge to Hull. We had our trusty guide Peter who not only took some of us around Hull but produced maps and information sheets for everyone. So many great museums and of course Hull Minster. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks once again to Peter. Looking forward to our next day away.
On Sunday 14th July it was the annual Spilsby Show. The Heart Support Group had a stall (a children’s lucky dip) It was a lovely day and by 2pm all our 220 items were gone. All the proceeds are for the British Heart Foundation. As well as lots of children we had grandparents and the Town Crier came to see us. During the afternoon we were all delighted to see the Lancaster Bomber doing a fly over. Thanks for all our members who came along and helped on the day and thanks to the Spilsby show committee for another great show.
Wednesday the 3rd of July was our Annual BBQ, we were all keeping an eye on the weather and hoping it would be fine, our prayers were answered and we had a lovely sunny afternoon and evening. We had 62 people attending and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, plenty of good food, lots of salads and of course scrumptious desserts. Lots of laughter and being able to catch up with old friends. All waiting for our next event to happen.
With some in-trepidation due to the heavy rain and some flooding we set off for our first trip out this year to Boston” We’ll Meet Again WW2 Museum. Wow what a surprise we all got when we arrived at the museum, what a place so many things to see in the museum. We were welcomed by the owner Paul and Linda and they gave us a talk about how the museum came about. Then we had time to look round before Paul gave us the Blitz Experience, that was really something. Afterwards tea and cake was provided. What a fantastic place everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day.
On Monday the 3rd June Jean held her annual Golf Tournament in memory of her husband Mike. The weather was fine and dry, just right for golf. The winner of the trophy this year was Graham Houlton. On the day Jean raised £250 for the Heart Support Group. Well done Jean and thanks to everyone who took part.
What a lovely day we had on Wednesday the 15th May at the Health & Wellbeing day which was in the beautiful Walled Garden at Baumber Nr Horncastle. The Heart Support Group had a stand along with the cardiac nurses who were kept very busy all day doing blood pressure checks.
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.
On the 6th March we held our AGM with 31 members attending. There was no change to the committee and Nick Adams is happy to continue as President for a further year. The AGM was followed by a buffet and raffle, people mingled and were able to chat to each other. Everyone is looking forward to the coming years events.
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.
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.
