A Tree To Remember Anita


Wrawby Horticultural Society have purchased a flowering cherry tree for Anita Greenfield who sadly passed away earlier this year, in honour of the work and commitment she gave to the running of the Annual Show.

Anita's husband John and son Sean planted the tree which is situated beside the Wrawby Torch commemorative seat near to the church. John thought it a fitting place as Anita was one of the organisers of that memorable day.

Many thanks go to Mark Campbell of AMC Handyman Services for the construction of the tree guard.

Ordination of Rev Trudy Hobson


The Reverend Trudy Hobson, Curate to the group of parishes including Wrawby, was ordained priest at 5.30 p.m. on the 1st July 2017 at Lincoln Cathedral. This was followed by her celebrating her first Mass at 10.30 a.m. on Sunday 2nd July at St John’s Church, Brigg.

St Mary's School Sports Day

First of all huge congratulations to Blue Team who won the Sports Day Cup. All of the children certainly tried to be the best that they could be - not only in their races but in their sportsmanship and support of others too. There are lots of photographs to see on the website (scrolling on the home page and in the gallery). Thank you to the PTFA for providing refreshments and to all of our visitors who came to support the children.

Wrawby St Mary’s PTFA would like to say a huge thank you to the school cooks for all their help cooking the bacon for the sandwiches and a big thank you to everyone that bought refreshments and raffle tickets. We made a profit of £274.22. Many thanks for all your support and lovely feedback
