First-ever ‘Drive It Day’ for car club and other Neighbourhood News

A new motoring club in Boston recently enjoyed its first-ever ‘Drive It Day’.

Members of the East Coast Classic and Modified Car Club assembled at Boston’s Spirit of Endeavour pub for the ride, sharing a cuppa and a natter before their departure.

The idea was to share a ride in their classic and modified automobiles.

They then travelled to Three Horseshoes, in Louth, where they stopped for a meal.

Thanks are given to all those who supported the event.

The club launched at the start of the year.

It meets at Wyberton Sports and Social Club, in Causeway, on the fourth Monday of the month, from 7.30pm.

* Fenland


The Fenland Natural Health group holds its next meeting tomorrow (Thursday, May 24) at Sutterton Village Hall, from 7.30-9.30pm.

It will see herbalist Katie Dobiesz present a talk on the vagus nerve.

The vagus nerve is the longest and most complex of the 12 pairs of cranial nerves that emanate from the brain.

This nerve connects the brain to the body, and so transmits information to or from the surface of the brain to tissues and organs elsewhere in the body.

Katie will be teaching visitors how to activate and naturally stimulate the vagus nerve in order to achieve better health.

To compliment this the group’s herb of the month will be Achillea millefolium (Yarrow), a traditional bitter tonic, with a long history as a wound healer.

Entry is charged at £3 per person, which includes a complimentary drink, plus a hand-out to take home.

* Freiston

The ‘newspaper team’ at St Peter and St Paul’s Church is looking for help in tying up the newspapers which the public are kindly saving.

The church needs the papers to keep coming as it provides revenue for the church, but, at times, it is struggling to tie them up into tabloid bundles.

Thanks are given to Mike Tarran who has recently been in to help, but another volunteer is required.

Thanks are also expressed to those who take the trouble to remove the staples from the supplements by pulling or cutting them out.

Anyone interested in helping should contact Hilary Burton 01775 840802.
