Village Sale Trail Result

The sale trail was once again enjoyed by many and for once the weather was on our side.  We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who booked a stall to go on our map and to everyone who volunteered their help on the day in various locations, selling maps, refreshments and checking in on the stall holders.
Also of course thank you to those who came  to have a look around the stalls, grabbed some goodies and stopped in for refreshments at the village hall.
We raised a fabulous £265 in total to donate to local groups, charities or good causes.  Some of this will be donated to the local Osprey Explorers group who meet weekly at the scout hut, we are still looking for suggestions for at least one other to donate to
– if anyone has any suggestions please let me know by email

Kirton History Recorder

Kirton History Recorder

Since Len Lanigan died last year the post of history recorder for Kirton has been vacant until my appointment this March. Len had been in post for many years and his knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm will be a hard act to follow. He is much missed and I will endeavour to follow in his tradition, not only keeping comprehensive records but also painting a picture of contemporary village life that will inform future generations. Kirton has a particularly rich record of its past history- including mention of it in Domesday book where it was called Kirketuna. I shall try very hard to maintain Len's high standards. It may well be that my emphasis and approach may differ but I will always have Len in mind as my examplar.

I look forward to working with Jo Shaw who is Recorder for Falkenham and also I hope working closely with Kirton residents. If you have any photographs or knowledge of local events, news, changes that affect the village, l please do let me know. Local history is not just about dry facts but rather about active and living experiences.

This will be an exciting year for Kirton, we start with the Jubilee celebrations in June.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ann Colvill
