It’s been a busy time since our last news letter. Rubin has left us left and Jura has joined us.

At the Jubilee weekend we held our annual Hog Roast and raised £668 for our chosen charities Wish Upon A Star and Lincolnshire an Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. They will receive half each. The is a fantastic amount considering how horrible the weather was.

Woodside/Rectory even won the tug of war competition. I look forward to seeing you throughout the summer period at one of our many events.
