Builder’s waste issue raised at Parish Council meeting

The remains of Lindum Cottage, demolished in March this year, seem to have been abandoned, apparently regardless the feelings of those who live nearby. This issue was raised at the public forum preceding yesterday’s Parish Council meeting. A formal proposal to urgently contact the landowner, understood to be Coningsby building company Costellow and Tokelove, was unanimously accepted by councillors following due discussion.

New TV cop to clean up East Lincolnshire

” When high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon lands in Boston, Lincolnshire, with his 14 year-old daughter Kelsey in tow, he’s hoping they can flee their painful recent past. But this unfamiliar, unimpressed community will force Bill to question everything about himself and leave him asking whether it’s Boston that needs Bill, or Bill that needs Boston?”

Such is the storyline of “Wild Bill”, an new detective series commissioned recently by ITV. It stars Rob Lowe as the high-flying US cop who will shake up the East Lincolnshire force; you might recognise him from The West Wing, Parks and Recreation, Code Black or St. Elmo’s Fire. Continue reading

Cameo Club Report: October 2018

Cameo Club of Kirkby on Bain and Roughton – October Report by Jill Russell

The meeting was on 16th October and I think it was fitting that I filled in the first talk of the year with one on genealogy research and my daughter Ella Russell gave the last talk on : ‘Balancing Life as a Rock  Climber and a career as an Employment Lawyer’ – A rocky but rewarding combination. Without the vote given to women in 1918 even our feisty female forebears would not have imagined what Ella has achieved and the change that has come about in the potential for women to develop, even if there is still more to be done.

Ella started with a description of her life’s journey so far, being 33 years old. She was always encouraged to be active and she showed us her little walking boots which she wore when her father took her up and down a scrambling route on Snowden when she was 6. Holidays were always to hills and mountains from Peak District, Wales, Lakes, Scottish Isles to Pyrenees, Alps, Dolomites.                  Continue reading

So where is our fast broadband?

Image courtesy ChannelBiz UKLast January Paul Bimson, Regional Partnership Director, BT East Midlands, assured Kirkby on Bain Parish Councillor Simon Tydeman that: “Openreach are working to have all of the necessary engineering work completed and fibre cables installed and operational during Q3 of this year.” At the last Parish Council meeting I reported that engineers had been spotted in the village surveying for the new service, which raised a few hopes yet again, but by my reckoning Q3 (third quarter) ended yesterday.

So where is it Mr Bimson?
