An eclectic mix this month – a floral festival in Minting, a musical evening in Martin, an organist who came to fame through Britain’s Got Talent, and a summer charity ball – both in Woodhall Spa.
June 10 & 11
Minting and Gautby Floral Festival Weekend.
“Our two lovely little villages are holding a Floral Festival on the weekend of June 10th and 11th, to raise funds for both churches and Gautby Village Hall. The churches will be decorated with flowers around the theme of “Pastimes and Hobbies in the Countryside”. Each day starts off at Minting Village Hall at 10:30am and ends at 4:30pm. On Saturday, there will be a PLANT SALE at the village hall and the MR Ukulele Duo will perform in each church.” Full details
