A Living & Vibrant Village

 

Gringley on the Hill has changed over the years, and is now more of a commuter town close to large centres than a self-contained farming village. Nevertheless it has stuck to the principles of operating as a community, and this page of the website introduces some of the many voluntary clubs and associations, and low cost local community groups, that help make the village gel.

 

THE BEACON

The Beacon Magazine has been published for at least 40 years. It costs a mere £3  a year and contains news, views and adverts to keep all villagers fully in the picture. For more information click HERE.



THE W.I.

The W.I. has a thriving branch in Gringley on the Hill.  It usually meets in the Community Centre the first Wednesday evening of each month. For full details and the future programme please click HERE.

There are volunteers in the village prepared to give time, practical help and emergency help that cannot be obtained from family or social services, such as hospital transport, emergency shopping/collecting prescriptions, small household tasks, letters and form filling, basic emergency gardening tasks and helping people recently discharged from hospital.

GAINSBOROUGH FURNITURE RESOURCE CENTRE


We are a local community group who collect unwanted items of furniture from members of public. The items are then redistributed to those on low incomes in the local area. We have been running for approximately six years and are looking to expand our collection area. We have predominantly worked in the West Lindsey area. We work alongside West Lindsey district council who support our project through contacts of furniture that could be going to waste. The project is manned by dedicated volunteers and a supportive board of trustees.
