Volunteering students

Kirton in Lindsey Town Council is working with Duke of Edinburgh Scheme Bronze Award students from Huntcliff Academy, based in the town, to offer voluntary work which forms part of attainment of their Award.

In May the students volunteered to help refresh the railings around the town’s War Memorial and they spent the morning preparing the railings by cleaning them, including the removal of some lichen, and then repainting the railings in black and gold. This was in time for the town’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

At the end of June the students returned to carry out more cleaning and painting, this time of the bollards and the chain link fencing around the town Green. Thank you to Miss Lord and members of Huntcliff staff who supported the students during these works.

The students were a credit to themselves, Huntcliff and the community in helping with this work for the benefit of everyone.
Kirton in Lindsey Town Council is proud of local community efforts which benefit all, and have received keen interest from a number of local youth organisations to help with projects such as this across Kirton in Lindsey.

This has included tidying and preparation work ahead of the visit by In Bloom judges in July by the local Brownies, Guides and Scouts. There was also assistance from the local Fire Station crew! Thank you to everyone who has been involved.
