Picture of the Day

Big Smoke Band

Another night of great entertainment in Winteringham Village Hall.

Five very talented young men who played a wide variety of instruments from trumpet to double bass (to name but two).  One of them even treated us to a solo on the Wash Board.

The audience enjoyed their vibrant mixture of American and British Folk music. Gospel, booze, love and murder were all part of their programme.

Elvis and Johnny Cash were two of the artists whose songs they sung but it was obvious from their choice of songs that Bob Dylan was their favourite artist.

The hall was not packed but those who did attend had a wonderful evening listening to these friendly and amusing musicians and showed their appreciation by loud applause.

(Thanks to Christine Hammond for the report)

“Britain from Above” gets closer!  But now the bad news!

Britain from above shows aerial photos taken from all over the UK, between 1919 and 1953.  Recently added to the website are photos of Winterton and Roxby - but not Winteringham.

The bad news is that ALL photographs taken by the project that are in usable condition, have now been placed on the Britain from Above website .... and NONE feature Winteringham.  There are loads for Scunthorpe, Roxby, and Winterton.  Some for Horkstow and Barton, but none for our village.

There are two aerial photos of a boat off Winteringham.  To find them on the BFA website, search for “Brough.”  Whitton Lightship is also on the site.

The Winteringham Bus Company?

Altofts buses were bought out by Enterprise and Silver Dawn, along with many of the other small bus companies of the area, including Spencers of Winterton, in the 1930s.  However, there was a garage for buses in High Burgage well into the 1950s.
