Londonthorpe & Harrowby Without Parish Council
About The Parish
The Parish covers a large area that wraps around the east side of Grantham. It includes Londonthorpe, Alma Park, The Spinney Estate, Harrowby, Prince William Of Gloucester Barracks and the area of Bridge End Road Estate East of the town boundary.
Nearly four thousand people are on the electoral roll for the Parish, this was increasing weekly as the Spinney Estate continued to grow. This has obviously now slowed down as sale of houses has slowed down.
The Parish is served by the one Church of St. John the Baptist in Londonthorpe. Primary schooling within the Parish is provided by the Belmont Community School on Harrowby Lane. Other schools are situated just inside the town boundary.
Londonthorpe did have our only Post Office, unfortunately this closed in 2008. Shops can be found on Alma Park Road including a Fish and Chip shop, Newsagents, Hairdressers and Electrical repair shop.
Plans were passed for a convenience store to be built on Sunningdale.Costcutters opened there in 2008. A Pizza/Kebab Takeaway opened in one of the smaller units and a Fish & Chip shop in the other unfortunately these are now both closed.
Being one of the Grantham Districts main light industrial estates, Alma Park provides employment for several hundred occupants of the Parish.
Belton Park Golf Club lies wholly in the Parish as does Kesteven Rugby Club.
