Village News: Burgh le Marsh

ALLOTMENTS - The town council is still inviting written expressions of interest in working (or providing land for use as) allotments.

For more information or to express your interest in an allotment, contact the town clerk at or by post to Council Chamber, Market Place, Burgh le Marsh, PE24 5JW

CAR - A car boot sale in aid of the Burgh and District Sports Association is held on the Marsh Lane Sports field every Thursday morning.

LIBRARY CHANGES - The Mobile Library stop at Dobson’s Court has ceased operation as of June 30.

The stop was discontinued following consultation and review exercises by Lincolnshire County Council over the past year, which highlighted low uptake of the service by residents, with an average of fewer than three customers per 30 minute period being the benchmark for discontinuation.

At present, the static library in the Community Complex on High Street will continue to operate its Monday, Thursday and Saturday schedules, and the town council will continue to augment this with the Tuesday opening hours during council surgeries on the last Friday of the month.

Additional library opening hours can be secured through community groups using the library for events with the understanding that users can come in during that time to check out or return books or use the computers.

If you are interested in using Burgh Library as a venue for your activities or event, and to facilitate additional operating hours, then contact the town clerk on 01754 811218, via email at or by post to Council Chamber, Market Place, Burgh le Marsh, PE24 5JW.

WINDMILL - The windmill, the tea room and the Heritage Centre are open every Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers are always needed to join the team so if you feel like learning to operate the windmill, show visitors around the Heritage Centre or help in the tea room then pop along to the windmill on Sunday afternoons to meet the volunteers and find out how to become involved.
