From Lincolnshire County Council, via the Parish Council:
Impact of the Part Night Street Lighting Policy
In April 2016, the County Council began a street light transformation programme, in a bid to save £1.7m per year from the £5m annual street lighting budget. As a result of the changes, around 42,000 streetlights, mainly in residential areas, are now switched off between midnight and 6am.
A scrutiny panel of councillors is now carrying out a formal review into the impact of part
night lighting, looking at topics including the environment, crime rates, fears about safety and crime, emergency services, health and public health services, the impact on businesses and the night-time economy. Continue reading
Yes, it’s about those pesky mustard gas cylinders again. Kirkby Lane will be closed from from November 20 to 1.30pm November 25, due to the decontamination work in progress. To judge by the positions of the road signs the closure seems to be between the old chicken farm (opposite “Woodlands”,) and the junction with Woodland Drive.
There is also a sign at the Woodhall Spa T junction (B1191) but did nobody (e.g. Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department,) have the wit or courtesy to place a sign at our end of the lane or at the junction with Wellsyke Lane?
NB: According to East Lindsey District Council, who are coordinating the project, the time and date of the end of the closure has been changed to 1pm on November 25.
A scheduled meeting of the Council was held on November 2nd in the Primary School Hall, Wharf Lane, Kirkby on Bain, starting at 7.00 pm.
Three members of the public attended, along with Lincolnshire County Councillor Bradwell and ELDC Councillor Craig Leyland, both of whom offered useful advice and information during the meeting.

From Martin Briscombe
Following a very successful uptake at the telephone box this summer, the stock of all books is somewhat depleted. In particular we need children’s books, from Toddler right up to Teenager. So if you have read books that you or your family have enjoyed please drop them off at the box for others to do the same. Thanks so much for your help
