This month’s talk was on the subject of “Lincolnshire Windmills”, and was given by Malcolm from Dobson’s Windmill at Burgh le Marsh.  He gave us a very interesting, illustrated, talk on the history and variations in the mills of this county.  There were a large number of mills in the Boston area, sadly only a few of them still remain.

The next meeting will be on 10th July, at 7.30 p.m. in Friskney Village Hall.  The talk, on the subject of “The Home Guard”, will be given by Chrissie Chapman.   Visitors are very welcome.

On 15th July we are holding our Centenary Jamboree from 1.00 p.m. until 4.00 p.m. at the Village Hall and Playing Field.  Further details on the flyer distributed with the Parish Magazine, or see the ‘Events’ page. Magazine.
