GOSBERTON House School had a very busy Christmas period with a hugely successful Christmas fair organised by the PTFA. All classes participated by having their own stalls and making their items to sell. The children entertained parents and carers with a Christmas concert, held at school, and they were also able to visit Santa in a beautiful grotto at school and finishing the term with their Christmas party. The school has had a very busy start to the new year which began with a visit from the Star Lincs Mobile Planetarium. The children have also enjoyed shopping visits, spending their enterprise money, which they made at the Christmas fair and using their number skills to choose and pay for their goods. The children also now have the use of iPads in school which is a wonderful addition to their learning resources.

West Pinchbeck

THE Senior Club of West Pinchbeck inaugural meeting of the new year, planned for Wednesday, January 23, was cancelled as there was concern over the state of the car park for walking. It was felt that the safety of the members was greater than the meeting itself (health and safety and all that). It is hoped that all members were advised regarding the cancellation and that nobody turned up (including any potential new members). So the first meeting of the new year now becomes February 6, still at The West Pinchbeck Village Hall at 2pm, and will cover the agenda of the cancelled meeting, which is the presentation of this year’s programme of meetings and the opportunity for the membership to alter any of it if there is a feeling to do so. It also presents an opportunity for orders to be placed for the meal at the following meeting on February 20. After this, time allowing, there will a game of Hoy Bingo. Again we would invite anybody, not necessarily from the West Pinchbeck area, who is interested in a club that hopes to entertain its members with a varied programme and gives the opportunity to mix with similar aged people to contact Pauline Ashton (club secretary) on 01775 768480 for further details.

Whaplode Drove

LUNCHES will be served in the Church Room on Saturday, February 2 from 11am until 2pm. Jacket potatoes with homemade dessert to follow. Usual stalls and raffle.
