Council and carols
Parish council - At the recent meeting, Mrs C Harkus was co-opted on to the council and was welcomed by the chairman and councillors.
Coun Gill Shaw advised that Graham Harness had volunteered to maintain the war memorial and keep the area clear of weeds and rubbish.
The footway in Thorpe had received attention and was looking much approved.
It was also confirmed that the National Trust was going to maintain the footway between the car park, bowling green and the castle.
The council was currently holding £93.76 in flag money – donations received in lieu of requests from the public to fly a flag of their choice in the Market Place to mark a special occasion.
The money is given to charity and it was resolved to carry forward the decision when the fund reaches £100.
The National Trust had indicated it would be willing to support an event locally to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday and a tea party at the castle may be appropriate.
A request of support was received from Tattershall Primary School towards the recently set up wind band. It was decided to donate £100.
Carol concert - Another enjoyable seasonable Christmas evening will be on offer at the village hall when the annual carol concert takes place on Sunday, December 13, at 6pm.
Included during the evening will be a wealth of community singing and traditional carols.
Local residents and primary school children will also be participating, together with the youth band. Admission is £1.
Cheques will also be donated to various local charities by Woodhall Spa Rotary Club and the Coningsby and Tattershall Lions.
