Sudbrooke

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, started by local sculptor Helen Link and since Helens departure from the village, Coral Evans, meets regularly to produce large 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 Ladies Club, Pre-School Group, Dance classes, Kickboxing (for the teenagers), Mah Jong 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.
