The Kirton in Lindsey Society’s (KLS) season of indoor meetings continues Tuesday 24th May at 7.30pm, in the Town Hall, Market Place, Kirton in Lindsey.
In a change to the published programme, this month’s talk will be given by Mary Hollingsworth and is entitled ‘From Cattle Crossing to Dreaming Spires – the story of Oxford’. From Anglo Saxon beginnings to a world-famous place of learning to a major manufacturer of cars, Oxford owes its prestigious history to its strategic position on the River Thames. This talk rambles through 1,500 years of occupation to give a flavour of what made Oxford a major city.
The June talk is about the Lincolnshire area Plough Jag Plays and will be given by Ruairidh Greig.
Outings are coming up in July (a visit to Wrawby Post Mill) and August (visit to International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln).
St Andrew’s United Church is open during the West Lindsey Churches Festival weekend of 14th and 15th May. As well as displays on the theme ‘Herbs and Spices around the World’, there will be materials from Lincolnshire Archives and The Kirton in Lindsey Society archives, tower tours, organ recitals, a children’s trail and craft activities relating to the Herbs and Spices’. Soup and light refreshments will be served. For more information visit www.churchesfestival.info.
