Harvest festival - There was a full house for the community harvest festival in the town hall, organised by members of the Methodist Church.

The Rev Alan Robson, agriculture chaplain for Lincolnshire, gave informative talks between the singing of harvest hymns, with music provided by the Mareham-Le-Fen Silver Band.

Through the evening Mr Robson spoke about the history of early farming, from the times when landed gentry owned the land and the workers earned a pittance, through to the present day, when he asked everyone to think about food waste.

There was a generous collection of tins and non-perishable goods, which will go to the food bank.

Coffee morning - Members of Wragby and District Social Group, formerly Disability Lincs, invited friends and neighbours to join them for the annual autumn coffee morning

There were lots of prizes in the raffle and the prize every time tombola was popular too.

Denis Brader won the cash in the 50/50 game.

The event raised £216.90 for funds and thanks go to all who gave their support.

Variety show - The show has become a popular addition to the seasonal calendar, with local talent of all ages taking to the stage to entertain the audience, with music, song, comedy and dance.

The event raises money for the maintenance of the town hall and anyone interested in taking part is invited to contact Margaret Kane on 01673 858067.

The date of this year’s show is Saturday, December 3, starting at 7.30pm.

Jumble sale - Dove Park Bowls Club’s end of season autumn sale was once again said to be a huge success.

Customers formed a queue waiting for the doors to open- and just over an hour later the members were delighted to find they had raised £505, giving a welcome boost to funds.

Stalls were piled high with goods for everyone to browse through, including the popular bric a brac and home made cakes.

At the end of the day, there was more than enough jumble to have a further sale and this was donated to the Primary School.

Thanks go to all who helped and those who gave their support, while bowls club members are now looking forward to the indoor season.

Concert - Lindum Ladies Choir will be in concert at the Methodist Chapel on Friday November 4 at 7pm.

Tickets, including light refreshments, cost £5 and are available from Les Robinson on 01673 857063 or Mo Fricke on 01673 858334.

Bingo - Yvonne Blackburn was on duty as caller at the monthly Saturday Night Family Bingo in the town hall.

Everyone enjoyed the opportunity of winning the cash prizes while also supporting the town hall refurbishing fund.

And the fund was given a welcome boost of £125.75, which included the proceeds of the popular tombola, which was run by John Kane and Simon Kane.
