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

Invitation to join the Woodhall Spa Twinning Association

On behalf of Dave Eldridge, WSTA Chairman:

Last year a merry band of Woodhall Spa and district families once again crossed the Channel to spend a long weekend with their French hosts en famille, and plans are now being drawn up for the next return visit by our partners from Roëzé sur Sarthe in May this year.

It seems likely that demand will exceed supply, as there may be more French families wishing to visit us than we have English families offering to welcome them into their homes, so we would be very pleased to hear from anyone in a neighbouring parish such as Kirkby on Bain who would like to join in the fun.
