The Bishop of Lincoln Visits Worlaby, 2018
Since 2010, we at St Clement’s Church have provided welcome refreshments to the large number of people who enjoy walking in the countryside round Worlaby under North Lincolnshire Council’s Walking for Health scheme.
But on Tuesday 29th May, they had an unexpected companion – none other than the Bishop of Lincoln, The Rt Rev’d Christopher Lowson.
Our Curate, Trudy, who had invited the Bishop, also joined the group and they both enjoyed the three mile trek chatting to dozens of fellow walkers. And afterwards, back at St Clement’s Church the conversations continued happily over drinks, sandwiches and delicious cakes served by Esmé, Elsie and Iris who were visiting Worlaby during their half term holiday.

Step Back in Time, 2016
What a wonderful celebration of life in Worlaby over the last century this was! With an exhibition of old photos, maps, artefacts – and the chance to hear from villagers who have lived through it all, everyone who came along was completely absorbed.
Thank you to Christine Fletcher for all her hard work organising it, to all those who contributed and participated and to those who made and served the afternoon teas.
Here's a taster of the afternoon from Geoff Ward, Jeff Rowson and Christine Fletcher
Geoff Ward talks about the annual killing of the pig.
Jeff Rowson explains how he came to be the man responsible for giving Worlaby 'The Four Minute Warning' in event of nuclear attack.
When the Neighbourhood Planning Group of The Parish Council formulated the idea of a reminiscences day, we could not have anticipated the enormous response from so many people.
It was a privilege to have enabled them to renew friendships, share anecdotes and recollections, and spend time together.
There were a number of visitors who had travelled long distances to take part in the event, and it was a delight to share their pleasure.
Massive thanks to everyone who contributed, and to THE TEAM, who got together once again to ensure that delicious afternoon teas were enjoyed by all.
During this year, on at least four occasions, they have undertaken this activity, and guaranteed a sumptuous feast at every function. It all involves a great deal of planning and organisation, and their energy and commitment is outstanding.
