Facilities available in the village

SERVICES
The village is on mains power and (pumped) mains drainage.   As power comes in on overhead lines some locations experience power drops from time to time.  If a major installation is being contemplated it would be wise to take qualified advice as it has been found that some locations do not have sufficient capacity to support very heavy electrical loads.  Western Power is responsible for the power supply facilities not your billing agency.

The village does not have mains gas.

In winter the A607 and the A17 are salted, as is Pottergate.   For details of other salted roads see the LCC  website at (Caution. this is a 7.25MB document):

In very poor weather it can be useful to listen to BBC Lincolnshire on 94.9 or 104.7 FM  for weather, traffic and school closure reports.  School closures are also shown and updated on the Lincolnshire County Council and NKDC websites.

NKDC also maintain a 'snow news' feature on their website.  Road travel information is available on  www.bbc.co.uk/travelnews/lincolnshire/

COMMUNICATIONS
The village is on broadband but not yet at 8MB. Check your ISP's website for the current situation.
