Keep Those New Years Resolutions to Eat Better and Get More Exercise by Getting an Allotment!

Keep Those New Years Resolutions to Eat Better and Get More Exercise by Getting an Allotment!

Allotments are great for growing your own fresh fruit and vegetables. When you "grow your own" you know exactly how your food was produced and it always tastes better fresh from the ground. While you are looking after your allotment, without even knowing it, you keep fit and stay healthy because of the gentle exercise and fresh foods you eat.

It's not only your physical health that benefits from an allotment, gardening has long been known to improve mental health and wellbeing. The combination of fresh air, exercise, relaxation and the company of other allotment holders can do wonders to boost your mood. More »

Allotments are great for families too, children find growing their own food amazing and love to pick what they have grown. It is an opportunity for parents and grandparents to spend quality time with the younger generations passing on their gardening knowledge. Children will also love the nature that is attracted to an allotment, frogs, mini beasts and birds are just a few creatures that can be spotted on allotments making them an important haven for wildlife in the town.

Skegness residents can take on an allotment now and get 15 months rent for the price of 12 months. Yearly rents are just £30.00 including water.

East Lindsey District Council seeks views on 2018/19 draft budget

East Lindsey District Council seeks views on 2018/19 draft budget

EAST Lindsey District Council is inviting residents, business and interested parties to have their say on its draft budget proposals for 2018/19.

Over the next four years, the District Council continues to face significant financial challenges and via its Transformation Programme is continuing to identify opportunities to increase income and make savings to balance the budget and protect services to the community. By 2020 the Council expects to no longer receive Government grant funding to support service provision (approximately £4m). More »

The draft budget proposes:

- An increase of 3.75% in Council Tax – this is equivalent to 9.5p per week for those living in a Band D home. Most homes fall into a lower Band so their increase would be less. Council Tax in East Lindsey remains the lowest in Lincolnshire.

- To protect services to the community but recognises that further budget reductions and/ or income streams are likely to be required over the medium term.

- Support for vulnerable people and the economy of the District remain priorities.

East Lindsey District Council, along with eight other authorities in Greater Lincolnshire, have been chosen to pilot a Business Rates Retention scheme for 2018/19, which will allow the Council to keep 100% of the business rates raised. Current estimates suggest that this could bring in up to £900,000 extra income. Any additional income would be spent on maintaining services and investing in economic development.

Portfolio Holder for Finance, Councillor Richard Fry, said: "We continue to cope with pressures around reduced funding from central Government and we know that this will continue in the coming years. Our draft budget reflects the need to be resilient in the face of these challenges but also sets out our priorities of doing all we can to support the District's most vulnerable residents, grow the economy of the area and provide the services we have to by law.

"We have continued to make savings and we'll look to carry this on by becoming more efficient in the way we deliver our services. Whilst savings achieved through our services are important, it is crucial we look at ways in which we can generate more income and I'm currently working with officers to fully understand the ways in which we can achieve this."

To read the full budget proposals and to take part in the consultation visit www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/budget or one of the Council's Community Access Points.

The consultation is open until 5pm on February 1, 2018.

Once the consultation is completed the views of the community will be passed back to the Executive Board for consideration on February 14, 2018. A report will then go to Council on February 28, 2018. » Less
