Fibre Broadband – the cables are going in!

Image courtesy ChannelBiz UKHaving learned recently from Lincolnshire Broadband Programme Manager Steve Brookes that  “……work is currently on hold because of high build costs…..” imagine my surprise this morning when I saw fast broadband fibre cables being installed in Kirkby on Bain main street. I had a chat with one of the installation crew, and he confirmed that they were installing fibre-to-the-premises cable today. They also kindly allowed me to take a picture, provided they were not in shot:

Kirkby on Bain historical walk

Last Thursday, seven villagers and one former resident turned up at St Mary’s Church to meet local historian, writer and artist Edward Mayor and his dog Sandy, for the much-anticipated historical walk around Kirkby on Bain, advertised here earlier. And they were not to be disappointed, despite the torrid heatwave conditions.

The walk started off in the cool of the Church as Edward introduced himself and gave us a summary of the earliest history of the village, one of several Kirkbys in Lincolnshire, some of which were mentioned on Edward’s historical map, from the Domesday reference to Cherchebi onward. The group then set off on a circular route along by the canal to Swandrift bridge, stopping at the probable sites of the gravel barge wharf and the old oak bridge for explanations, questions, answers and comments.             Continue reading

Is this your cat?

Yesterday (May 14) a small cat turned up at our house. Quite friendly and quite hungry, possibly a young pregnant female, she stood her ground against our cat Jack and stayed around all day.

She has turned up again this morning. I have spoken to a very helpful local cats’ protection representative, who has explained that unfortunately they are unable to take in strays in at the moment, so please, if you own this cat, or even if you know who does, could you get in touch as soon as possible by leaving a comment here or calling 01526 354783?
