Welcome to the Scothern Parish Council and Community Website.

This website is for the benefit of the local community and you can find details of parish council activities (including meeting dates, agendas & minutes), information about community happenings and our clubs/societies.

Bus service suspended
The bus service through the village will be suspended due to roadworks on the Scothern - Nettleham road for a period of up to 10 days from week commencing Monday 16 July 2018.
Despite several representations to both Lincolnshire County Council and Stagecoach it has not been possible to maintain a public bus service during the period of the closure.

Arrangements have been made with the Call Connect service to maintain a service from Scothern to both Nettleham and Welton for the period of the closure only. To pre-book a journey on the 100L Call Connect Bus Service please call 03452 343344. As much notice as possible should be given, as there is only one bus and it serves much of West Lindsey, however a special case is being made for Scothern so that passengers are inconvenienced as little as possible.

Call Connect will pick up in the village and the usual drop off points are Tesco, Waitrose (where Stagecoach service numbers 11 and 12 can be picked up), Lincoln County Hospital, Newport Lincoln (Radio Lincolnshire).  There is also a service into the city centre on Saturdays. Bus passes can be used on Call Connect.

Call Connect is a service that connects passengers to bus routes however it is necessary to register with the service; a very easy process that can be done over the telephone; 03452 343344 and it would be possible to book a journey at the same time. A registration number will be given which will enable the service to be used in the future.

It is also possible to register with Call Connect on line http://www.connectlincolnshire.com; bookings can be made online too.
