Best Kept Frontage competition 2023
The Best Kept Frontage competition returns again this autumn, giving town centre owners of both commercial and residential premises recognition for the fronts of their properties being of pleasing appearance. No entry form is necessary, and the pleasing nature of the appearance of a property does not depend on the property having a garden.
The area concerned is the High Street down to Queen Street, Sylvester Street, George Street, and the Market Place. The Town Council wishes to encourage visitors to our town to recognise our lovely old town centre.
There will be rosettes, decorative scrolls, and commemorative mugs for the winners. We are looking for Best Commercial Frontage, Best Residential Frontage and will also include Highly Commendeds (either commercial or residential).
Judging has taken place and the winners will be notified prior to a public announcement.

Local Councils Award Scheme
Local Council Award Scheme Success
In March 2021, Kirton in Lindsey Town Council was notified of its success in the Local Council Award Scheme and presented with the Foundation Award.
Local councils are at the very heart of their communities; giving neighbourhoods a voice and making people more involved in the decisions that affect them. Local councils want to serve their communities as best they can and make a real difference to the lives of the people that live there.
The Local Council Award Scheme offers Councils the opportunity to show that they meet the standards set by the sector, assessed by their peers, and to put in place the conditions for continued improvement
The award provides assurance to the Council that it is up-to-date and progressive by the standards set by the sector. For all Councils, winning the award should be a celebration for Councillors and officers, as their commitment and hard work are recognised and respected.
Receiving this award gives the local community and other local partners the confidence that the Council is delivering to a national professional standard.
The East Riding and Northern Lincolnshire Local Councils Association (ERNLLCA), who coordinated the local accreditation panel to assess the Town Council’s application, commented:
“Parish and Town councils sit at the very heart of their communities, giving neighbourhoods a voice. Through an extensive range of discretionary powers these councils also provide and maintain a variety of important and visible local services.
The Local Council Award Scheme has been designed to recognise those Parish and Town councils which wish to improve their functioning and governance and, therefore, better serve their communities.
Following a rigorous review of its application, the Local Council Award Scheme Accreditation Panel is pleased to confirm that it has awarded Foundation stage to Kirton in Lindsey Town Council.
The scheme recognises and celebrates the successes of the very best Parish and Town councils, and provides a framework to support those councils improve and develop to meet their full potential. To be granted an award under the Scheme enables councils to be an example of the very best that Town and Parish Councils can be.
ERNLLCA offers its sincere congratulations to Kirton in Lindsey Town Council on its achievement.”
The award is valid until February 2025.
Unnamed Paths Survey
Kirton in Lindsey Town Council is keen to retain the existing network of paths in the town, as if they go unrecorded they could in time be lost. Thank you to those of you who wish to see the paths protected and responded to the recent survey. The recording of the paths can only be achieved with support from residents who are happy to confirm that they use the paths and that they are needed! The Town Council survey about this closed on 30th April, and the results can be viewed here: Unnamed Paths Survey results. Thank you to everyone who responded. The next step is for an approach to North Lincolnshire Council to ask for the process to be started. If you require any further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
