   The Arts All Inclusive Group 

 
Lingen AAI was set up in 1988 with the aid of an Awards for All lottery grant with partnership monies from the existing History Fellowship.  This grant enabled the publication of the Lingen History Group book 'Lingen Past and Present' and the provision of exhibition and Teddy Tots display boards, stage make-up, percussion instruments, etc.
 
Our arts policy requires us to support all arts related events in the village hall.  Since the beginning we have also supported other village groups with set-up costs, eg the Bowls Club, Spanish Club white board, Lingen Stitchers, Needling Along and with village hall decoration and kitchen equipment plus Tots Music Group instruments.
 
The vision of Bill & Pam Rosser to set up the Art & Craft Exhibition has succeeded and surpassed our expectations, enabling us to pay back the History Fellowship, which now functions as a seperate group.  The Exhibition and Sale which usually took place in the village hall over the August bank holiday has now been postponed until further notice.
 
Since 1998 we have held concerts given by post graduates from Birmingham Conservatoire, Pentabus Productions, Arts Alive presentations and regularly host Flicks in the Sticks films.  We have also been active in rebuilding a length of dry stone wall to landmark the site of Stonewall Hill.  (Photos available on request)
 
In 2006 a suggestion was made by local resident Christine Moore that village verges would look great planted with snowdrops and wild daffodils - this was a job that was undertook and completed on an extremely cold February day.  The plantings were made under each village name plate sign after which followed a high tea at the village hall for all the very cold volunteers - their mascott for the day was 'Alfie', the late Angela Turnbull's Jack Russell dog who also enjoyed a piece of chocolate cake kindly supplied by Jess Prosser.
