Transcript of Lily Brown’s First World War diary – November 2017

Those of you who have read Discovering the Wolds may well have been intrigued by the selection of entries from a diary kept by Lily Brown between 1916 and 1918.  Thanks to Patricia Baker the whole diary has now been transcribed and is available as a PDF from the WHO’s web site (www.hoap.co.uk/who).  Do try to read this diary before or around Christmas as the description of her family’s celebrations is one of the more detailed accounts.

Wymeswold Village Project Fund Community Grants 2017

The Wymeswold Waddle and Duck Races were held on Sunday 14th May and with great weather it was a superb community event for all.

The Duck Race committee raised around £1000 from the betting races, BBQ and games while the various local non-commercial organisations ran their own attractions and retained their profits.

Wymeswold Village Project Fund (the organising committee behind the annual Duck Races) is again making grants available to local clubs, associations, societies, community projects and charities. These grants are as a result of the profits realised on the betting races, BBQ and games.

Applications are invited from properly-constituted community and voluntary groups for activities not conducted for profit. Grants should be towards a new initiative or project (rather than general running costs) and there should be an identifiable benefit to people residing in the parish of Wymeswold.

The organisation or project must be based in the Parish of Wymeswold or carry out activities (other than fund-raising) within the Parish.

Further details of the criteria for grant applications and an application form can be obtained from Wilma O’Leary (Secretary of the Wymeswold Village Project Fund / Duck Races) at wilma.oleary@googlemail.com. Details and the application form can also be downloaded below.

Completed application forms should be forwarded to the Secretary (at 1 Marys Close, Wymeswold) by 31st October 2017, including details of the purpose of the grant requested and how such a grant would benefit the members of the organisation or the greater community.

Details of the awards will be posted on the Parish Noticeboard, the Christian Link and on www.wymeswold.com  later in the year.
