The Annual Lingen Autumn Lectures will again this year have four interesting and thought provoking speakers for you to come and listen to. Starting in Uganda, we travel to the Antarctic via Europe and then home to Herefordshire: during which our speakers will enthral you on their specialised subjects.
The first lecture will begin on Wednesday 12th October at 7.30pm and run through each week until Wednesday 2nd November. Entrance £8 on the door to include a complimentary drink and canapés or a season ticket is available at £30 for all four lectures. Tickets can be pre-booked by phoning Mary on 01568 770920 or Kay 01544 267377 and by emailing: email@example.com
Proceeds to the care and maintenance of Lingen Village Hall (reg. charity no219377), the hall management committee is most grateful to the lecture sponsors and those that have helped in the staging of these lectures in any way. LINGEN AUTUMN LECTURES 2016 PROGRAMME

Our Lingen Village Phone Box is AGAIN under threat. Unfortunately, this time it appears both the service and phone box itself are to disappear. A notice dated 07.09.16 gives 42 days from that date, to make any objections to the Local Authority Planning Dept. before removal. The reason given is 'low usage'.
Last time a petition was raised and sent via our parish council to British Telecom citing the reasons for keeping the service alive. Those reasons are as valid today as they were then. After talks, BT then offered the phone box to the village for the princely sum of £1 (approx.) with the end result that no further maintenance etc. would be carried out by BT. The Clerk of the day, took up the offer, so it's unclear why BT are assuming it's their property to remove? And surely it is worth more than the £1 (approx.) which was paid for it, it could even be possibly considered a Lingen historic relic!?
The British Heart Foundation Heartstart Courses held at the village hall turned out to be a real success with a total of 36 residents taking part on the three courses and another 19 residents attending the defib DVD evening.
