We are an active civic and local history society based in Kirton in Lindsey, North Lincolnshire since 1987. We hold regular meetings, trips and talks. Enquiries about the local area and family history are welcomed, as are all members, existing and new, young and old.

Upcoming Events

The speaker for the October meeting of the Kirton in Lindsey Society has cancelled and, as we cannot do our December ‘social’ and meet current Covid guidelines, the committee has decided to cancel all meetings for the remainder of this year. We will review the position for January onwards in December. We are sorry to have to do this as we have been trying really hard to keep the talks programme going, particularly as the Town Hall is very safe space, but circumstances have overtaken us.

Stay safe everyone and we hope 2021 brings better news.
