Future Biogas Maize Harvest

Future Biogas plan to start the maize harvest Wednesday 29th September 2021. The contractor will be instructed with a driver’s protocol for safety on site but equally to drive courteously with a respectful speed when passing through villages. They will try to set up one-way systems of travel to lower the frequency of tractors and trailers on the same road. They anticipate that harvest will be over in 5-6 weeks although it may take longer if we have changeable weather.

Local Bus Service Restarts

From Monday 27th September, we will be running Service 94 again from Kirton, Redbourne & Hibaldstow to Brigg, we will be operating the service Monday to Friday.

This service is fully commercial with no support from North Lincolnshire Council so they need as many passengers possible to keep the service running and give the community a regular bus service into Brigg.

Best Kept Village Results

Redbourne has been awarded joint 3rd Place in the Small Village Category of this year’s Best Kept Village Category.
Judges comments below:
A most attractive village, where local residents clearly care about their environment and community planting is a real strength.
Excellent planting can be found on the corner of Beck Lane and High Street with very attractive flower beds and a most impressive bed of well selected grasses.
Along Beck Lane there was colourful planting on the pillars along the Beck and across the bridge Further good planting was found at School Lane, the junction of Carr Lane and St Andrew’s Close, Park Lane and by the village sign on High Street
There was planting beneath the street signs in several locations around the village.
There are many lovely gardens in the village with some good planting and colourful floral displays in the front gardens of many properties.
Good examples were found at Boxmoor House Empringham Cottage, Ford Cottage and Springfield Beck Lane; Stonecroft Vicarage Lane; 2, 7 and 9 Old School Yard; 7 Carr Lane and 3 High Street.
Special mention must be made of the tremendous floral display at number 2 Pond Cottage and the great efforts made by residents on St Andrew Close especially numbers 1, 2, 4 and 1 3.
The Red Lion also provided good floral displays with hanging baskets and colourfully planted baskets on the wall of the car park.

Play Area Refurbishment

The refurbishment of Redbourne Play Area is now complete.

Located in the centre of the village, the play area benefits from a new Orchard Teepee climbing frame, a Toot slide and a Nest swing (pictured above). An existing swing frame has also been upgraded. Along with the current equipment, the new activities will enable the play area to be used by a wider age range of children – from ages 4 to 12 year olds. Supported by adults, children with disabilities can also enjoy outdoor play.

Children are already using the play area and have reported how much they are enjoying using all the new equipment.

Flooding

The report into flood mitigation following on from the November 2019 flood report has now been issued. This report is available for viewing on the Flooding page. The previous report completed as a result of investigating flood mitigation in Redbourne following on from the 2007 flood event can also be viewed there.

Please direct any comments regarding your observations on these reports to the clerk@redbourneparishcouncil.gov.uk May open an email client if one is installed. We have been advised that the meeting we hoped the drainage officers would call to review the report findings has not taken place due to the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19.
