Fotherby Parish Council and local residents have come together to help promote their beautiful village and have replaced an old notice board which has been transformed into a source of information for local walks.
Fotherby Parish Council gave the go-ahead for the old board to be re-sited back into the village, which had been previously damaged through vandalism at Fotherby Common.
But the board has now seen a new lease of life and is now springing into use as an ‘Interpretation Board’ which shows two local six-mile walks, both starting and ending in Fotherby, alongside a depth of information on the history of the village.
Author Hugh Marrows, who has compiled a whole host of books based on different walks in Lincolnshire, has also given the parish council his permission to use some of the walks he has illustrated previously for their new leaflet.
Thanks to the assistance from the Lincolnshire Wolds Sustainable Development Fund, the new leaflet about the walks in Fotherby has been designed to complement the new board.
These leaflets can be obtained via the local bus stop in the village, which has a dispenser filled with the brochures.
Or can you pick one up at St Mary’s Church in Fotherby, which is open every Wednesday, from the Tourist Information Centre in Louth, or at the Navigation House in Riverhead in Louth.
