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 Annual Village meeting
The Annual Village Meeting for the residents of Lea will take place on Monday 22nd May at Lea Village Hall at 7:00
You are invited to attend the Annual Village Meeting which is open to all electors of Lea, who have the right not only to attend but also to speak on any matter of local interest. Councillors attend this meeting as members of the public, only the Chair of the Council must take the chair. If the Chair is not present, the Vice-chair of the Council must preside. This meeting has its own minutes but these will only be approved at the next Annual Parish Meeting. Matters arising from the meeting are not binding on the Council, though Council will take heed of what is said as it provides a prime opportunity to ensure the Council is acting on the needs and wishes of the community.
Annual Village Meeting – The Schedule
7:00 Chair’s welcome and introduction. Ratification of minutes of last meeting.
7:10 Jill Martin, Lea Parish Council Festival Coordinator, will present a summary of the Lea Park Festival 50th Anniversary. It’s your chance to hear about what is being planned and how you can get involved. Raffle tickets at 50 pence a go will be on sale. Please support this fun day for all the family.
7:20 Review of current situation with Council and future plans, including financial situation. Remember it is money from the council tax you pay that finances the village. As a result of the new development on Willingham Road the village also has two additional funds to spend. It is important that the residents of Lea have a say in how funding is spent.
7:40 Questions and comments from the floor. This is your opportunity to raise any issues relating to the village.
7:50 Residents are invited to stay and have a look at displays, ask questions and leave comments.
