Willingham by Stow, which was mentioned in the Domesday book, is six miles south of Gainsborough and twelve miles north of Lincoln. It has always been a mainly arable farming community with twenty farmers working the land in the late 19th century compared with just a handful now. St.Helen's church dates from the 11th century with registers that document events as far back as 1562 . The Methodist Chapel on High Street (No longer a place of worship) was built in 1885. There have been many business's in the village over the years but now there are two pubs, The Half Moon and The Fox and Hounds, plus the Howson Care Centre which is situated on Marton Lane. Lord Hawke was born in Willingham Rectory (1860).

Carole Hicking has been making masks for her family and they turned out so well that she would now like to offer her services to our village.  
There is a pouch inside so that a filter can be used (some people use coffee filters and slot them in which does the job).  The soft elastic has a toggle so it is adjustable on the head rather than pulling on ears, which can be annoying for spectacle wearers.
Adult sizes would be £4.50 with two children’s sizes available; 4-8 years and 8-12 years at £2.50. If you have two you could wash one while wearing the other.
Profit from the sales will be donated to good causes within the village
