The pictures below show members of the club at their Christmas Dinner, this year at the Fox and Hounds, Willingham by Stow.  Next year maps will be given out to ensure everyone finds the venue; unfortunately two of our members were within a couple of hundred yards but turned round and went home.  More pictures to follow soon.

Another successful Used Equipment Sale was held at the end of October with lots of bargains to be had.  We had our regular visitors from surrounding clubs and some from a little further afield – Hull, York and Barry to name just three.  Bob G7AVU was our auctioneer; he had help from Steve M5ZZZ and Jason G7KPM; Ian G4EVK and Terry G7JFI gladly received the money.  Pam G4STO cooked a few hotdogs and made teas and coffee.

The date for our April sale in 25th April 2018.

Fifteen of us enjoyed Cumberland, ‘Old English’ (not sure which county these were from) and Lincolnshire sausages as part of National Sausage Week.  Weather was inclement (rained all morning) so we retreated to the Village Hall.  Sorry about the quality of the photos.

Help was at hand, Jackie preparing the rolls for the sausages.

I suggested Haggis for our next event but a few noses turned up!  I’ve read somewhere “Don’t fear the haggis. Just think of it as a big, round sausage. That’s what it is anyway.”

To this!!

On Saturday 14th October members of the club celebrated Lincolnshire Sausage Day by eating delicious Lincolnshire Sausages.

It is UK Sausage Week from Monday 30th October to Sunday 5th November so there could well be another Sausage Event on Saturday 4th November.

Sorry about the quality of the photos; tablet still.

A few of our members will have a better idea of what to do if they find someone lying lifelessly on the ground!!  Ian G4EVK gave members a talk and demonstration on basic first aid.

A few photos from the evening taken on my tablet (camera not working).

The photo below shows Ian putting Stephen M6TSJ into the recovery position.
