Welcome to Kirton in Lindsey Diamond Jubilee Town Hall
KLIX - Kirton in Lindsey flicks!
The Town Hall now has it's own community cinema club. There will be monthly showings of films with one aimed at adults on a Saturday evening and another for a family audience on the following Sunday afternoon. The nature of the licence means that only members of the club can attend but it's easy to become a member and there is no charge. Give Hannah a ring on 07752 246255 for more information.

“Kirton in Lindsey Past & Present: Heritage Fun for All the Family
This year marks the 170th Anniversary of the SLHA (Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology) and (in partnership with Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall and the Kirton in Lindsey Society) they will be running a series of heritage-related activities over the next few months. There is a display of the work of the SLHA in the Heritage Room until the end of May. Alongside this there is a programme of family craft sessions, guided walks, vintage films and family fun and games – all with a heritage theme.
Details of the May programme is below:
KIRTON'S OWN 'STRICTLY'!
Ballroom dancing classes will finish at the end of April but the monthly Tea Dances carry on throughout the spring and summer so don't let the grass grow under your feet! Lessons will resume in the autumn.
Community Cafe closed
Unfortunately this facility has now closed due to lack of customers. It was originally trialled to support the revised Kirton Klipper timetable where people would be spending a lot more time in Kirton between buses but it has not proven to be needed. A big ‘thank you’ must go to the small band of volunteers who regularly turned up to provide refreshments. We may look to see if there is any merit in trying again in the summer and opening up the garden. Any feedback on this idea would be gratefully received.
