Chairman's Comments At a recent Council meeting I am able to confirm that we have signed up to the formal Agreement with L i n c o l n s h i re C o u n t y Council which will mean that we retain a Library in Saxilby for at least the next 10 years. This is great news for the Village and our exciting plans mean that we will have a facility that we hope more and more people will use.


Open Morning to discuss Library (Date to be advised)

Memorial Service December 1st Christmas Tree Lighting

Our aim is to get more usage from people, young and old, and we will be offering new and exciting courses, workshops and sessions for children. We will be looking to County Council to enhance their offering in the Library and the agreement that we have signed sets out what they have to deliver as well as what we have to provide at the facility.

I fully accept that there are concerns amongst some people and we will try and allay those fears over the forthcoming months. We will be meet- We will hold a Open ing with the Friends of Morning in September so Saxilby Library to see you can tell us what you how we can work with

want in the new Library. We are, over the next few weeks, further improving the facilities at St Andrews Community Centre to welcome the Library but it is envisaged that it will be open in mid to late October. We are one of the first of the new-style Libraries and our model will be picked up by many more small Libraries over the next few years. Times change and we, as your Parish are at the forefront of these changes. Now you can be assured that we will put all energies into making it work!

Saxilby Parish Council has set up a new Facebook Group “Saxilby Information & Events” Information will be provided here on local group meetings and events as well as information from the District and County Council’s. Information that is posted on village notice boards will now be available in one easily-accessible place online!

We will now be concentrating our efforts on reapplying for funding for the wheeled park and MUGA, I will keep you informed of our progress. Now that we are back to normal the wardens are working hard around the village to get the grass cutting back on schedule, as they have been severely hindered by the recent weather.
