A message from Peter Heath, Chairman Sudbrooke Parish Council

The country is facing an un paralleled peace time emergency and we all have a part to play if the Corona virus is to be defeated.

As a rural community on the edge of a large city it is easy to concentrate on those near to us to the exclusion of everyone else without realising it. How many of us know our neighbours? Are they elderly, less mobile and could that be the reason that they are not seen out and about?

 The challenge facing us is to protect ourselves and to ensure that those less able are not forgotten.  I would suggest that you might be able to achieve both these by cautious contact with those whom you think may need a bit of help.  A note through the door asking if assistance is required and if so, what.

 It may be that you could do the good deed of picking up a prescription from the doctors or helping to set up an on-line delivery with a local supermarket. The simple act of kindness in recognising your neighbours will go a long way to help alleviate the distress of isolation.

Sudbrooke is a small Lincolnshire village, situated six miles north-east of the city of Lincoln. The old part of the village is centred around the church, and across the road is the newer area of housing that enjoys access to a large area of adjoining woodland.

Sudbrooke is well-known for its large number of spring flowering bulbs which brighten up the village, particularly around the Millennium Stone – a large, floodlit ‘standing stone’ situated at one entrance to the village.

Every December an impressive Christmas tree with lights is sited by the Stone.

The Woodcarving Group was started by a local sculptor. The group meet regularly to produce wood carvings that are sited around the village. The first project was a collection of carved posts that are positioned round the Millennium Stone. The Group has also carved some four-feet high tree stumps into seats which are sited in the Jubilee Garden.  It is hoped that they will continue to be able to carve a Village sign from an old oak which had to be felled in the Sudbrooke Scout Campsite.  New members are welcome to join.

The Village Hall has excellent facilities. There are two children’s play areas, one by the Village Hall, and the other on the Northfield Park site where the pre-school group meets. The Northfield Park site has a seat which was purchased with contributions from friends of a young village student who died in a road accident.

The village has many active groups including the  Pre-School Group, Kickboxing (for the teenagers),  and Sudbrooke Seniors Coffee Mornings. The Gardening Club and Walking Group meet regularly.

Spring and Autumn ‘Litter Picks’ are arranged; the District Council supplies bags, bibs, grabbers and gloves for volunteers. The Parish Council has an excellent working relationship with the WLDC Street Force Team, which follows up the litter picks with a street clean and collection of the rubbish during the following week.

Sudbrooke has an active Parish Council that works with residents and neighbouring parishes to make Sudbrooke a pleasant place to live.
