Both the Lincolnshire WI and the British Legion are celebrating their 90th anniversary year in 2011.

Park Lane Youth Club

One group left out is the Park Lane Youth Group. Should it close this will leave Nicholls and The Hive as the only remaining youth groups in town.


Trevor Marris Deputy Mayor has pointed out that only 21 groups received cash, not 22 as I originally stated on this page. Eastgate Union Church was not given money.
