Tattershall

A much loved Lincolnshire attraction, Tattershall Farm Park, has been targeted in a second burglary in as many months, prompting another police investigation.

Power tools, a quad bike, and other were stolen in a £25,000 burglary in the early hours of the morning on August 8. The quad bike was later recovered, and their farm park’s appeal prompted a big response before police released a CCTV footage to aid their investigation.

Tattershall Farm Park, which is located on Marsh Lane, recently posted on social media saying “last night (September 26) this happened again, any information please get in touch”. The video footage shows the offenders walking away with multiple items.

Police said they received a call about the incident just after 7am on Tuesday, September 27. Offenders stole two strimmers, a Makita tool box, a pole borer, and a strimmer helmet from one of the buildings at the farm.

Our inquiries into both incidents are ongoing and we are appealing for anyone who has any information that will assist our inquiry to contact us.

A new £2 million household waste and recycling centre is open in Lincolnshire and is bigger than the decommissioned site it has replaced.

The Tattershall Household Waste Recycling Centre on Kirkby Lane in Tattershall Thorpe will handle, sort, and dispose of materials more efficiently than the previous centre.

The new facility, which will serve Horncastle and the surrounding area, replaced an existing privately-owned centre at Kirkby on Bain.

It has four state-of-the-art waste compactors, which feed 10 containers. These are able to hold three times the amount of waste than a standard open top compactor, helping to reduce haulage costs.

The centre will be open five days a week between 9am and 4pm – Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (closed Wednesday and Thursday).

Following a £2million investment from Lincolnshire County Council, the new facility has replaced an existing, privately-owned centre at Kirkby on Bain, which is now set to be decommissioned.

The new facility accommodates four state-of-the-art waste compactors, which feed 10 containers.

Mike Reed, Head of Waste at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Tattershall Household Waste Recycling Centre represents another significant project completed in partnership with G F Tomlinson using the SCAPE Regional Construction framework.

“The facility will provide a better environment for local residents to dispose of their material and will contribute to Lincolnshire’s circular economy aspirations.”
