Britain's Biggest Dairy
With only 5 major dairies in the UK there has now been a push to create another, but this will be the Goliath of all dairies here in the UK. Surely this is not what the public really want. Is it?

Common Agricultural Policy - Who gets what?
Subsidies paid to farmers and others under the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy amount to approximately €55 billion a year, more than 40% of European Union’s entire annual budget, or around €100 a year for each EU citizen. helps people find out who gets what, and why.  Click here:

Road Closure
Signs have appeared on the B1188 Lincoln to Sleaford road, showing that it will be closed to traffic between Branston and the Potterhanworth crossroads (B1178) on the following dates:
  •  19th March (1900hrs) - 21st March 2010 (2200hrs)
  • 26th March (1900hrs) - 28th March 2010 (2200hrs)
  • 9th April (1900hrs) - 11th April 2010 (2200hrs)
I assume suitable route diversions will be in place.


  1. I have just noticed that NKDC is supporting in principle the proposal for a Digester at Wasps Nest. The report (posted on 22nd March) states that there is no connection with the Dairy application but refers to it throughout. If it goes ahead, there's another 28k tons of slurry for our surrounding fields! The report can be found at:

  2. re last comment on the Nocton Fen Digester - I think the web link I quoted is wrong - apologies. It's on the NKDC planning site under planning application no: 10/0206/CCC
