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.
Lea Park 50th Anniversary Festival
In 2023 it will be 50yrs since the formal opening of Lea Park and Lea Parish Council think that is something worth celebrating!
Saturday 9th September will see the Lea Park 50th Anniversary Festival, so get that date in your diaries! Between 12:00 and 21:00 there will be much to see and do in Lea Park, including:
Donkey rides, a climbing wall, a children's entertainer, dancing groups, sports groups, food stalls, a craft fair, vintage tractors and cars, live music and so much more!
A dedicated group of volunteers are organising this event and a great deal of hard work has already been completed but we NEED MORE HELP! If you can help on the day, even if just for an hour, especially during the morning when setting up, please, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
ANY HELP IS REALLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU!

The new play area
At last the new play area is finally on it's way!
After a delay of 5 months, Lea Parish Council are now in receipt of monies owed by Rippon Homes and so can now proceed with plans for the new play area for children aged 12 and under. The old equipment will be removed, except the slide, and all new equipment will be installed. To allow for this to happen the Council has employed a ground work firm, the play equipment installers and fencing contractors. Unfortunately, the delay in receiving the funding means that original dates for the installation have been lost but we now have a new provisional date in early September. The council is disappointed that the play area will not be installed for the summer, but it will be worth the wait!
