Lambley Historical Society

The 2018 A.G.M was held at the start of the first meeting of the year. The chairman, John Smith, spoke of the success of last year’s meetings and outlined the programme arranged by the secretary, Kay Winfield, for the one to come. John also reminded members of the Society’s involvement in Lambley’s village community, in particular the work in progress with the schoolchildren, funded by money left over and given to us from the Dumbles Project. An update was given on the Boundary Project which has had some successes but some setbacks.

John thanked the committee and also our President Chris Weir, for his invaluable advice and active participation in everything we do.

The treasurer assured us that our finances were healthy thanks to increased membership, visitors’ fees at most meetings and well supported outings. The committee agreed to continue, the auditor re-elected, the formalities completed.

The “bring and share” buffet which had steadily appeared before the start of the A.G.M. was soon being appreciated and demolished by all present. The chairman’s traditional Quiz was more demanding of concentration than usual. Never was food and wine consumed in such tense silence! Eventually the winner was declared, applauded and rewarded. The enjoyable evening ended.


Our next meeting is on March 26th at 7.30pm in the W.I.Hall in Lowdham when Michael Eaton will talk about Charlie Peace, the most notorious criminal of the 19th century and his time on the run in Nottingham. New members and visitors are made welcome.

Our speaker in February was a “Film Extra” who gave a very entertaining and amusing talk, with some great pictures of him in various TV series including “Last Of the Summer Wine”.

Our next meeting is on THURSDAY March 1st at 8.00pm in the Institute, when the speaker is Tim Sexton, who will be speaking about his role as manager of the Attenborough Nature Reserve.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

There will be some fairly extensive work, by the Parish Council, on the trees around the Bonner Lane site from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th February. This will entail preventing access to allotment holders in the vicinity of the work. Hopefully this will not be too inconvenient.

We will be arranging a trip to the Gardeners World Show at the NEC on Sunday 17th June. The cost of the trip will be the same as last year, £27 for members and £29 for non-members. This includes transport and entry to the show. It also includes entry to the Good Food Show which is on at the same time. If you are interested in going on the trip please contact Malcolm on 07814879720.

The President’s Cup this year will be awarded for the “weirdest looking vegetable or fruit” so perhaps you might not thin some of your carrots quite so well this year! We will also be holding our heaviest pumpkin competition at the AGM, which is planned to be on 18th October, so get sowing and feeding a winner.
