Markham Clinton Community Project

What a busy month it’s been at All Saints Parish Church and Community Centre in West Markham, near Tuxford!

A very successful music night was really well supported and enjoyed by many, despite torrential flooding that day, with many roads in the area closed. A huge thank you to the fabulous Ellie Danson Trio, who managed to battle the weather and were just fabulous. Lots of people got up to dance and there was a real party atmosphere. Watch this space as Music Nights will become a regular feature for 2024 with the Markham Clinton Community Project.

Quiz nights are getting so popular, they are having to buy more tables! Congratulations to Derrick Spence’s team, the Milton Marauders, who won the coveted cup and thank you everyone for your continued support with donations and, of course, their wonderful Quiz Master John Lambert.
