What an afternoon we had on Thursday when Maureen Sutton, the historian,
gave us a talk on the old customs and cures.
Members heard about Rook Pie, Nov – Soul Cakes, walking to the Goose Fair in Nottingham from Sibsey, Boston hiring fair, Oak Apple Day, Empire Day and different stories about Harvest home. Different customs about pig killing. She sang The Farmers boy and another old English song.
The few members present all enjoyed Mrs Suttons’ talk and hope she will come again.
