PARISH PLAN – Four priorities have been highlighted by the Parish Plan Action Group.

The initiatives in the pipeline are for a group litter pick on October 1, a visit from a theatre group, planting bulbs on the village green – subject to council approval – and improving broadband connection in the parish.

COUNCIL – At the recent meeting, it was agreed to register a complaint after it was reported an elderly resident received inadequate and slow emergency response when she was seriously ill.

It was reported the ambulance took an hour to arrive and was then only staffed by a driver.

A scramble net and seat in the playing field have been damaged; the police have been informed.

Fourteen smartwater kits have been distributed and more can be ordered if required.

The district council will be asked to provide name plates for Low Road, Main Street, Mill Lane and Lincoln Lane.

Planning permission has been granted for the change of use from a garage to living accommodation at Kirk Hill in Kirkby.

OPEN DAY – There will be the chance to ‘paws’ for some feline fun at the Lincolnshire Trust for Cats open day this weekend.

Walk around the extensive cattery on Saturday, September 3, between 11am and 4pm, and meet the cats currently in their care.

Take the opportunity to watch the sheep shearing demonstration, meet the donkeys and take part in the archery competition too, all while listening to music from Zimbabwe.

Craft stalls, books, produce and an all-day buffet will also be available and proceeds from the open day will go to further the work of the Trust.

The centre can be found at Hedgerows in Mill Lane and admission is £1 per car.
