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

Betty Dixon – moving on

Having lived in Kirkby on Bain since her childhood, Betty is moving away from the village to join some of her friends in Horncastle. On Saturday last, she found out just how much respect and affection she has inspired in all those in Kirkby who know her, and just how popular she is, as she found herself the centre of attention at a surprise garden party held in her honour.

And it really was a surprise when she caught sight of the tables and chairs set out on the Briscombe lawn on the dot of three o’clock, evidence of a neighbourly conspiracy. In fact her first comment was that she thought it must be book group day. As the applause rang out, she realised how wrong you can be.

In the time-honoured way, refreshments were taken and lively conversations ensued, all under the blistering sun of a perfect English summer day, and Martin marked the occasion with a short speech and a toast in Betty’s honour. In response Betty was keen to point out that though she was moving house, she would be in the village as often as possible. She won’t be short of invitations, that’s for sure. Continue reading

Environment Agency saves a moorhen’s nest

From Martin Briscombe:

The River Bain was recently seen to be partially blocked with debris caught on overhanging trees, between the two footbridges in the village. This was reported to the Environment Agency who responded within two hours with an action plan.

As a result they scheduled a team to do the work, but not before the resident  moorhen had hatched her brood on the makeshift island. Now with the chicks fledged, the Agency team has moved in and the river flows freely again.

Exit Equinox!

Kirkby on Bain Parish Councillors have been informed by East Lindsey District Council Licensing Section that the organisers of Equinox Festival have applied for a premises licence at a new location near Grimsby. After years of dogged opposition to noisy music festivals held at Scholey Park, this news was welcomed by Councillors representing the concerns of village residents adversely affected by noise nuisance.

Chairman of the Council Sam Midgley commented: “To all those involved over the past few years and the hard work put in by you and all the others, for your perseverance I salute you all and thank you.”
