Our new village thrift shop is open

From Roz and Alwyn Killingsworth:

We have just started a small thrift shop in St Mary’s Church to raise funds to help with maintenance and repairs. If you have any spare items you would like to donate please bring them to the Church and leave them at the back for sorting.

Please avoid books (which are welcome in the telephone box / book exchange) and electricals, as we are not able to have them PAT tested. If you would like to buy something, there’s a box in the aisle to put your donation in.          Continue reading

Annual Parish (Village) Meeting 2019

You are invited to this year’s Annual Parish Meeting, scheduled for 6.30pm,Thursday June 6th, in the Primary School Hall, Wharf Lane, Kirkby on Bain.

Though organised by your Parish Council, this event is not a formal Parish Council meeting, but rather an opportunity for the community to meet and discuss local issues informally, and to have some fun into the bargain.

As well as a Public Forum, this year we plan to offer a fascinating talk about the roman farm recently discovered near to our village, given by archaeologist Lydia Henry from Heritage Lincolnshire, a tart-tasting session, and a name-the-footpath competition. Children from the school have been invited to entertain us and of course refreshments galore will be freely available.                 Continue reading

Lindum Cottage rubble eyesore: update

The unsightly remains of Lindum Cottage, demolished in March 2018, have at last been moved out of sight.  The “eyesore” issue was originally raised at the Parish Council meeting last November, and was discussed once again at this month’s meeting. Following action by East Lindsey District Council, in December the present landowner, understood to be Coningsby building company Costellow and Tokelove, crushed the demolition rubble, but left the pile close to the main road through the village, causing further complaints by those living near the site and others passing through.

Fibre Broadband – the cables are going in!

Image courtesy ChannelBiz UKHaving learned recently from Lincolnshire Broadband Programme Manager Steve Brookes that  “……work is currently on hold because of high build costs…..” imagine my surprise this morning when I saw fast broadband fibre cables being installed in Kirkby on Bain main street. I had a chat with one of the installation crew, and he confirmed that they were installing fibre-to-the-premises cable today. They also kindly allowed me to take a picture, provided they were not in shot:
