Trinity Bridge in Crowland

Lots going on for all ages in Crowland

Crowland Cares – a charity which operates from a base at the town’s library – celebrates its 20th year in 2016.

The charity is involved in a number of schemes and events throughout the year to benefit the people of the town.
One of the things it does is run a South Holland voluntary car scheme using volunteer drivers.
In 2015, the car scheme undertook 688 journeys helping people get to hospital, doctor and dental appointments.
It also runs shopping trips if someone is unable to get their weekly shop.
At present it is run with a dozen volunteer drivers, who between them do a great job of serving the community.
A fundraising coffee morning to enable it to carry on this work is to be held in April.
One of Crowland Cares’ other priorities is trying to unite the younger and older generations and on April 21 – to coincide with the Queen’s birthday – members will be lighting beacons on Snowden Field and opening up the newly-refurbished pavilion for teas and refreshments
The charity is also proud to be involved in the supplying and fitting of a new defibrillator in the medical centre in the next few weeks.
Crowland will also be able to enjoy a Mayday celebration on May 7, which will see Crowland Parish Council working in conjunction with Southview Community Primary School.
The event will include a walking parade from the Snowden Field with small pushed floats.
It is also hoped the event will see the revival of the traditional may pole.
There is also ongoing work to form a cricket club for this summer.
It will be open to ladies, gents and children alike.
