Gluten Free Coffee Morning

It is around 8 years since I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and autoimmune disease for which there is no treatment other than a lifelong gluten free diet. Like most Coeliacs, I stick rigidly to my diet although there are times when I am desperate for an “ordinary” white bap full of all the things I can't eat, followed by something very naughty like a massive slice of “ordinary” cream cake! Obviously this can't happen but the second thing I would love to do is to go to a venue where I don't have to worry about gluten contamination and can chat with other Coeliacs. My thoughts are to start an informal Gluten Free Coffee Morning in our local area and if enough Coeliacs, their families and others on a gluten free diet support a new coffee morning then Coeliac UK are willing to formalise the group. Please get in touch with me if you are interested – tel 842099 or e-mail Anne Crawforth

The Middle Rasen Parish

Middle Rasen is situated in the district of West Lindsey in the county of Lincolnshire, about 16 miles north east of Lincoln and in the lea of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The village is mainly contained to the north of the A631.

Sitting astride the river Rase, the Parish is much the largest of the three Rasens, covering 3622 acres. As the Middle settlement between East Rasen (now known as Market Rasen) and West Rasen, in the latter part of the Middle Ages it was the most important village of the three. Indeed much of the northern area of Market Rasen town is in the Parish of Middle Rasen.

Rase Heritage Society ~ Reg Charity 1142022

Rase Heritage Society was established in 2005 to promote and encourage interest in the heritage of the Rase district – predominantly the parishes of Market and Middle Rasen.

It endeavours to preserve all aspects of the heritage of this area and is seeking a suitable building to be a permanent repository of documents and artefacts relevant to the history of the Rase district. We have a large collection of artefacts, the basis of which was formed from the auction of the Brian Ayres collection in 2009.

It also promotes itself and the Rasen area with regular themed events and displays to catch the public's attention. We are currently co-hosting the Wolds Women of Influence exhibition in the Old Police Station.

The Society meets monthly on the first Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in Market Rasen Library, except some summer months when we arrange ‘awaydays'. We run a full annual programme of meetings to which non-members are always welcome. Presentations are arranged on a variety of heritage topics by visiting speakers and members.

The Society also undertakes walks and talks to other interested organisations on the heritage of this area.

The Society has displays of artefacts around Market Rasen in various locations. If you would like more information, to see our current programme, or if you wish to contact us, please do so through our website Hazel Barnard (Chair )
