Agricultural journalist Alan Stennett looks back at the way things have changed in the past and considers what may be required in the future. Monday 23rd October, 7pm-8.30pm Alford Manor House, £3
“Farming in Lincolnshire has always had to change as new methods, new crops and different production systems are introduced, but changes in our relationship with Continental Europe and pressures imposed by climate change and environmental regulation will mean that more changes will be needed in the next few years.”

Earlier this month I noticed three rather nice videos on Youtube promoting the Lincolnshire Wolds which have now been compiled into one feature. There are quite a few scenes shot on our patch, dotted around the three original films, so it’s worth staying with it to the end. Why not sit back, take your mind off mustard gas down in the woods and see how many places or people you recognise!

Thanks to Councillor William Gray for this report on yesterday’s mustard gas incident public meeting at the Petwood Hotel, where by all accounts it was standing room only:

10 gas canisters have been recovered from a lake in Stixwould. They had not leaked and therefore the lake has not been contaminated. 3 people have been arrested and are on bail.
A small area of land in the woods has been contaminated and decontamination will now take place. East Lindsey District Council will oversee this operation with the assistance of professionals. Kirkby Lane will remain closed at present and the site will be fenced to prevent access. Continue reading
There will be a meeting held at the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa on the evening of Thursday, October 12, 2017, at 6.30pm, to update the community in regard to the recent discovery of Mustard Gas in woodland off Kirkby Lane. The meeting is primarily aimed at those living in close proximity to the woodland. At the meeting the Army, Police and District Council will all provide updates and details of next steps in addressing the issue of contaminated land. There will also be the chance for the community to ask questions. We have launched a webpage to keep the community informed as work progresses on site.
