Children in Need Song for Lincolnshire 2017

Radio Lincolnshire's annual songwriting competition is now on - the closing date for entries was September 15th, so it's too late to enter. However the final is being held this year on Thursday November 2nd at our very own South Holland Centre, and broadcast live on Radio Lincs from 7-10 pm. Tickets are free and are available now from SHC.
Spalding will be well represented with no fewer than five regular performers among the eight finalists. They are Angela King and Ashley Groombridge, Penny Sykes, Kim Biggs, Paul Dickinson, and Ian and Michelle Wright (well, they're from Woodhall but they come over here so often we're claiming them as Spaldonians).
The competition celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and is a favourite fixture on the Lincolnshire folk calendar.


Paul Brightman   

We're very sad to report that Paul passed away peacefully on 4 May after a short spell in hospital.  He will be very greatly missed - he contributed so much to the club, through his singing, his tireless work on Facebook and Twitter, and just through supporting so many local events by being there and taking part. More than that he was an inspiration to us all, always ready with a joke or a wry quip and never giving any hint of the struggle with his disability even as it slowly progressed over the years.  We shall remember him always with real affection. Rest in peace, Paul.


There might be more...

If there's any more news it will be on Twitter and Facebook before it reaches here. But never mind we like to cling to the old ways...
