Lea Parish Council

Welcome to the Lea Parish Council website

We hope you find the website interesting and beneficial, either as a resident of the Parish or a visitor to Lea.

Lea is a small quiet village which is situated to the south of Gainsborough town and is approximately 17 miles from Lincoln.   We are close to the River Trent and are surrounded by beautiful countryside with some lovely walks around the village.

Goodbye and Thank You Cllr Anderson!

On behalf of the residents of Lea, Lea Parish Council would like to say farewell and thank you to our longest serving Councillor, Fiona Anderson. Fiona has lived in the village for over 30 years and during that time she has served the community, firstly as a Governor at Lea, Frances Olive Anderson Primary School and then as a Parish Councillor. She has spent time as both Vice - Chair and Chair. It was Fiona who was the driving force behind the setting up of the Pop Up Pantry and whose tray bakes and Butler's Buns brought people back time and again. Not one for the limelight, Fiona was happier in the kitchen with the kettles and and the coffee machines! Fiona is irreplaceable, both in the Butler's Pantry and even more so on the Parish Council where her breadth and depth of knowledge of the village has been invaluable.

We wish her and her husband every happiness in their new home in West Yorkshire and hope they will pop back occassionally for a cuppa and a piece of cake.
