Around the Village

Great Recognition

 Its great recognition and thanks to all who helped clear, tidy and plant for the good of the village. Its a great starting point for what can be achieved in the future by all working together. Its in the name of our gardening club but was a true joint effort by the club, the school children, members of our PC and residents in general. I look forward to the development’s in coming years. This type of project takes time, it’s not an overnight event. Roll on 2018

Update to Eastoft Superfast Broadband

 

Update to Eastoft Superfast Broadband.

Eastoft Broadband Extension (Community Funded)

We have just had the second meeting with North lincs Council re getting superfast broadband into the rest of the village (we being the committee formed to get things moving and accessing grants etc.)

The meeting was to formalise where we needed to go next with applying for grant funding to meet the cost of getting BT/Openreach to supply the infrastructure (there is no competition in the village unfortunately) and to ask a few questions mostly of a technical nature.
We are looking now to formalise the structure of the committee and take this on as fast as we can to realise our wish for decent broadband speeds for everyone in the village that wants them.
We will know more by the time of our next meeting and will seek to keep you all up to date as much as we can. Please encourage those who you know will not read this that we are working for everyone not just those on facebook.

Any questions please ask an we will try our best to answer but please be aware we are at a very early stage and may not yet have an answer. Either on here or through me will be fine.

Eastoft Water Works

During week commencing 2nd October 2017 we’ll start work to upgrade the old water pipe on Washinghall Lane which is prone to bursting.

Our contract partner, Morrison Utility Services will be doing this work on our behalf and we hope to finish within 8 weeks.

We’ll start the work on Washinghall Lane near to the pumping station and continue down Washinghall Lane, our working area will finish by Leam House at Pademoor.

Whilst preparing for this work we’ve liaised with the Highways Department and to allow us to carry out the work as quickly and safely as possible we need to close Washinghall Lane to through traffic.

Access for residents within the road closure and emergency vehicles will be maintained and a fully signed diversion will be in place.

We’ll need to dig in the road and grass verges; all our working areas will be restored once we’ve finished the work.

Whilst carrying out the work there may be times when we’ll need to interrupt your water supply. Before any interruptions you’ll receive a hand delivered card notifying you of the dates and times in advance.

If you don’t live on Washinghall Lane we won’t be working outside your property, but we may need to interrupt your water supply during the work.
