'Oranges and Lemons says the Bell of Saint Clements'

After more than 10 years, Bill Hindle has relinquished his role of winding up the church clock now that he has regrettable, moved from the village.

This responsibility has now been taken on by Bobby Smithson, Tony Hayes and Justin Greaves who have to wind the mechanism every six days.

Everyone will appreciate the dedication of these individuals to ensure that the clock chimes are accurate and people will be aware of the time.


North Lincolnshire Rural Broadband Rollout update

Business Support
We’ve now provided over 1000 hours of FREE business support to local eligible businesses since the programme started in July last year.  Why have we done so many hours so far? Many of the businesses we support for free continue working with us and attend our workshops, even after they’ve completed the 12 hours required to obtain their free mobile device (currently a Microsoft Surface). We believe that shows how much our service is valued.


Have a look what other businesses have gained from our support. This month we’ve added case studies from ‘Lindsey Lodge Hospice’,  ‘Woodworx’ and ‘AP Robinson and Co Accountants and Business Advisors’ to our webpages.


If you’d like more information about the FREE business support we offer and eligibility criteria, please visit our webpages, or give Darren a call on 01724 297752. There are no catches. We are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).




First “live” cabinet ready
Fibre broadband via the Northern Lincolnshire Broadband project has arrived ahead of schedule! The project runs in four phases. Phase one was due to start this April and finish in September, but all involved have been hard at work making things happen much sooner than planned. The first cabinet went live on Friday 14 March, on Swift Drive in Scawby Brook. Many others will soon be ready too. Keep an eye on our webpages to keep up-to-date. Once upgraded, shop around for the best deal for you as BT have to let other internet providers use their network.

Don’t worry if you haven’t or don’t see your local area on the list. The roadshow will continue throughout 2014 and into 2015. We’ll also be out and about on evenings and at some weekend events. You don’t have to live or work in the named area to visit the roadshow bus.

The J.W Night

The J.W. Night is a 'social' night out for everyone and is @ Worlaby Village Hall on the LAST FRIDAY of every month, ( except December when the J.W. people will be hosting a New Years Eve party in the Village Hall )

We put out various games such as cards, dominos, darts, a pool table, a giant jenga and lots more. Some people bring their own games like scrabble and find others to play with!

There is NO admission charge and we provide complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits!  However, if you like something a little stronger please feel free to bring your own.

You can come with friends or by yourself. It really doesn't matter as there is always space to sit with others or a card school wanting more players. It is guaranteed you will be made very welcome and have plenty of people to talk to.

As we have to pay our way we do need to raise a little bit for the hire of the hall and other items so we try and have a little fun thing every time that won't break the bank! We have had prize bingo, name game cards where you could win
£30! Raffles and various other things going on so please don't come totally empty handed.

There is a free prize draw every month but you must be there to win it otherwise it is drawn again.

The main aim of the J.W. Night is to get back to the basics of what we would like village life to be! You wouldn't believe how many people have got together and helped each other but mainly, had a good laugh. It's lovely to be part of it!

Forth coming events at the J.W are as follows:-

April  25th -  A short quiz. Raffle. Usual games.

We would love to hear suggestions for other J.W. Nights so we put out a suggestion box for you to put in your ideas.

Keep looking on website for updates or the Worlaby Views.  Looking forward to seeing you there.
