Dr Susan Deal is a historian with a particular interest in everyday life in the Victorian period and is a member of the Victorian Society and editor of their South Yorkshire Group regional newsletter.
The raffle (donations of a prize are most welcome) will be in aid of the National Star College in Cheltenham.
For those wanting to make a weekend of it there will be an informal gathering at the Premier Inn Canwick on Friday evening, a more formal dinner in Lincoln on Saturday evening and a visit on Sunday morning.
