Welcome to the Digby Parish Council Website

he aim of this website is to inform and advise readers.  Apart from Parish business, you will find a Picture gallery containing old images of Digby, Allotment plots news and a Neighbourhood Watch section.  We also aim to add a 'what's on' in the village hall.  There is a Digby Archaeology page - you will find images of historical, every-day items used by our ancestors ranging from Victorian back to Roman found in and around our village.

Located in the beautiful and diverse county of Lincolnshire, Digby is a small rural village just 6 miles north of the bustling market town of Sleaford and 12 miles south of the ancient City of Lincoln.

With a population of c.500, Digby enjoys peace and tranquility that's becoming hard to find in many parts of England.

Digby C of E School has c.63 pupils and is situated behind the Church.

The fine Anglican Church dedicated to St.Thomas-a-Becket was built in the Gothic style and well worth a visit.

The Digby War Memorial Hall is located in Church Street, opposite the old pub built in during the 1600s, The Red Lion.  The gardens fronting the hall have been extensively refurbished and contain amongst the shrubbery two seats for the weary to just sit and watch the world go by. Evenings however, especially in the darker winter months are the time to see the multi-coloured  LED lights sunk into the edges of the 2 paths that cross the gardens.  These paths represent the searchlights used during WW2 and the patterns are duplicated in the iron gates to the gardens.

The Spires and Steeples heritage trail runs straight through the village, as does the annual Spires and Steeples Challenge, an annual charity run/walking event.

                       FIBRE OPTIC BROADBAND                                            COMING TO DIGBY

I have been in touch with the online team at LCC and the man responsible for Lincolnshire who has checked with BT and he spoke to me last night.

He can confirm that fibre to the box at the top of Church street will be connected by this time next year. The actual date will be confirmed early in 2014.

Within 1 mile of the box everybody will definitely be able to receive Super fast Broadband which is defined as greater than 24Mb . This is regardless of whether copper or aluminium cables. There will be a number of suppliers available and you can check nearer the time at www.onlinelincolnshire.org.

The further away then you will still be able to receive but the speed may be lower.
