Kirkby on Bain is now a geocaching village

From Martin Briscombe:

The worldwide phenomenon of Geocaching ( treasure hunting using a GPS signal) has finally come to Kirkby on Bain. A Geocache has been established in the village  with the help, cooperation and connivance of Kirkby on Bain Parish Council. It’s a simple cache which contains only a paper log to be completed by the finder, so if you see grown ups , children or families wandering the streets GPS meters or mobiles in hand don’t be alarmed. They are trying to find our geocache.

Geocaching for Everyone

If you and your kids love a good treasure hunt, then there you will also likely love geocaching. Continue reading

Parish Council update: July 2017

A scheduled meeting of the Council was held on Thursday July 6th, in the Primary School Hall, Wharf Lane, Kirkby on Bain, starting at 7.00 pm.

One member of the public attended, and the Chairman extended a warm welcome to Lincolnshire County Councillor Bradwell, who was able to offer useful advice and information during the meeting.

Of particular interest:

It was agreed that this year’s Annual Parish Meeting was a success, and that a similar format might be used in future. The events sub committee is now planning an apple-themed village festival, scheduled for October 8th. (Item 043).

Disappointment and frustration were expressed regarding the failure of BT / Openreach to install fibre broadband in the village despite a previous assurance that we would have it by now, made at an earlier Parish Council meeting by Paul Bimson, BT Regional Partnership Director. (Item 045).

Cameo club update: latest news

From Maura Dormer

Kirkby on Bain CAMEO Club enjoyed an outing to Anwick Garden Centre last month. Many thanks to the staff there who showed us around the centre and then kindly answered many questions and queries over tea and biscuits, the perfect way to garden!! A very enjoyable evening.

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the beginning of this month with an afternoon tea party in the gardens of one of our members, Maureen Jordan. We were so lucky to have a beautiful day and were able to sit in the garden and appreciate an English summer afternoon. Our group reformed in 1992 after some years of not meeting. We were fortunate to have some of the original members from 1992 attend, many of whom are still active in the group. Chairperson, Sue Wright gave a short speech looking back over the years, the group have had many exciting trips and speakers and have donated over £5,500 to various charities over the 25 years. Many thanks to Maureen and her husband Keith for all of their work and also to Sue Kind who provided an amazing afternoon tea.

We next meet on Tuesday 18th July at 8pm in Roughton Village Hall. Our speaker will be telling us of Chatsworth, past and present. Visitors and new members are very welcome – please either just come along or call me for more details.
