Tour of Britain Passes Through Wrawby!

It was great to see so many Wrawby residents out in force (despite the wet weather!) to cheer on the cyclists competing in the Tour of Britain last month. The event was met with much enthusiasm throughout the area. It was brilliant to see our village, along with other neighbouring towns and villages along the route really enter into the spirit of the race.

It’s a Knockout Fun Day — Thank You!

The PTFA would like to say a big thank you to everyone that entered teams and came along to support us for our It’s Knockout Family Fun Day. We’d also like to thank everyone for the wonderful feedback we’ve received about the day.

We don’t as yet have the final figure raised, but it will be in excess of £1500, which is incredible!

Our next PTFA event is a Fabulous Forties Night - With a Christmas Twist to be held at Wrawby Village Hall on Saturday 2nd December.

Room 21 Big Band will be performing varied programme of festive and 1940’s music. The 22-piece band features four vocalists — including the Ancholme Sisters who sing an Andrews Sisters tribute. Their repertoire includes; Glenn Miller, Count Basie and Frank Sinatra. More details will follow in next month’s Wrawby News.

Wrawby Make & Sale Group

We are a small group who meet regularly to 'make', over the past year we have not done as much 'sale' due to the fact that we have been very busy creating new kneelers for the altar rails in St. Mary’s Church. These are now complete and will be dedicated in the Church sometime soon.

The group also had a fun time 'yarn bombing' the bikes seen around the village for the tour of Britain!

The Make & Sale group are now preparing for the Barton Christmas Festival to be held on November 25th. If anyone has anything to donate for sale or if indeed anyone wishes to join us then please contact Liz 651371 or Kath 656446.

The group have also organised for Doughty's the fabric company to come to Wrawby with their roadshow. Doughty's sell a huge array of high quality affordable fabrics for all manner of projects, so do come along and see what's on offer – have a look on their web-site for ideas before the event.
