Janice Cumberland – It was it around 1959 when Bingo came to Caistor. They used to have Bingo upstairs in the British Legion on a Saturday night, and upstairs, above the Catholic Church on a Wednesday night. Does anyone remember when the Library was upstairs, in the old British Legion building, 1950’s. The baby Clinic used to be up there too. Mother’s used to be able to buy tinned baby milk powder, Rose hip syrup, Orange juice etc from there. Think it was about 1959 when the Library shut, it was replaced by a mobile Library, which used to park in Chapel Street.
