Annual Parish Meeting 2018

Following the announcement that the revised start date for Phase 2 of mustard gas clearance works by the Ministry of Defence was to be 16 April, notices have recently appeared at the Woodhall Spa end of Kirkby Lane, though not at the Kirkby on Bain end. Thanks LCC Highways! The signs indicate that the road will be closed from April 15 at 6pm until April 25 at 6pm.
