Serving The Community

Goxhill
Parish Council

National Grid River Humber Gas Pipeline Replacement Project have written to give advance notice of some localised noise that neighbouring residents may hear coming from our Goxhill site on Saturday 24th October between between 08:00 and 12:00.

Although the noise will be very localised to our Goxhill site, we wanted to make sure that neighbouring residents were given advanced warning as it will sound quite strange at first and could startle people and animals if they are very close to our site when it occurs.

The noise will come from our works to prepare for the removal of an existing piece of equipment at our existing Goxhill site. We expect it may last up to 30 minutes in total, with it growing steadily quieter over the duration. We don’t anticipate that it will be very noticeable beyond our site perimeter.

If anyone has any concerns then please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0800 988 9144 or at nationalgrid@riverhumberpipeline.com.

Library

As from the end of Friday 20-Mar-2020 the library will be temporarily closed

We hope that within this introduction we have included all the services and leisure facilities that our village has to offer, for both residents and visitors. Goxhill is a large village of around 2,300 residents, and still growing. We have retained our village library, run entirely by gallant and very able volunteers, where not only can books be borrowed but the Internet is available, with assistance if needed. The Doctors Surgery is located in the centre of the village together with a pharmacy.

Shops include a Lincolnshire Co-op Food Store, two hairdressers, a fish and chop shop, pet food supplier, a car repairers and garden machinery servicers, and just on the entrance to the village a tyre replacement service.

There are numerous small businesses also within the village, supplying many of the essential services.

We have a selection of leisure activities available some needing membership, others generally accessible: Tennis (hard court), a beautiful bowling green and children’s playing field, together with a multi-use games area. Snooker is available in the Memorial Hall, which can also be hired for private functions, shows etc. There are several stables in the village some giving riding instruction and an equestrian show is held in the village each year.

For keen gardeners there are allotments, which, from time to time become available. For the leisurely walkers there are many footpaths to explore, providing good exercise and possibly a different view of the village. A Primary School is located centrally, within easy walking distance of most homes, and is very much part of the community.

The village is served by churches of different denominations, and our community benefits from their organisation of, and taking part in, functions and activities throughout the year, who can miss the wonderful bell ringing from All Saints church, and the annual open gardens day started and organised by the Methodist church, and together with their helpers, still going strong.
