Allington

Lincolnshire

The village Market Cross, which dates back to the early middle ages, has been deteriorating for a number of years and the Parish Council is now launching an appeal for funds to pay for its desperately needed renovation which could, subject to survey, amount to £20,000.

So far, the restoration fund stands at just £6.000. So, we really will need the help and support of everyone that cares about our village heritage. There are many ways you can help. Make a cash donation, do a sponsored challenge, if your group or School runs an event, run a raffle in our support or use the easyfundraising site quoting “Allington Lincolnshire Amenity Fund” as your cause when you purchase online. If you run a business locally make a pledge and we will make sure your gift is recognised when the work is complete.

To donate: Contact the Parish Clerk for details parish.clerk@allingtonpc.org.uk or call. 07740 055381

Or contact any Parish Councillor. Details on the PC web site and Village notice board.

Thank You For Your Help

    1. I couldn’t agree more Garry. I also think it would help the appeal if there was more information available about the history of the cross.

        There is some history about the Cross in Brenda Pask’s book Story of a Lincolnshire village (page39). Not sure how to contact her but I would imagine she would be happy for you to use the information.
        It is a bit like Adam’s axe, the shaft and cross have been replaced a few times!

  1. Contrary to that published in Allington News, any donations by cheque should be payable to “Allington Parish Council”.
    Please don’t shoot the messenger! AN were given the wrong information.

  2. I suspect there are many in Allington who shop on line. If you are one of those people then do join Easy Fundraising and at no cost to yourself add some money to the Village Cross fund. I have been amazed how many firms,shops etc give a percentage to the fund. Try it every penny helps !
