CABINET CALL: By South Holland District Councillor Anthony Casson
It always gives me great pleasure to see local businesses doing well because, as a council, we are determined to help and support firms across the district.
The council owns four industrial sites across South Holland which are leased out to a range of companies.
These facilities are based in Sutton Bridge (14 units), Spalding (10 units), Holbeach (12 units) and Crowland (14 units).
It was recently brought to my attention that all units at the four sites are currently filled – the first time in many years that this has been the case.
This is fantastic news which I believe demonstrates that the local economy is improving after the struggles of recent years.
I hope this continues to be the case and you can rest assured that we will continue to do all we can to support businesses.
After all, one of our main priorities is to encourage the local economy to be vibrant with continued growth.
Moving on to a totally different subject, I would like to bring to your attention an event that will take place next month to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
To tie in with celebratory events happening all over the county to mark the occasion, we are organising an afternoon of Royal-themed fun and games at Ayscoughfee Hall in Spalding.
It will take place on Saturday, June 11, between 11am – 2pm and families will be invited to bring a picnic along to enjoy in the gardens.
There will be arts and crafts, face painting, garden games and live music throughout.
I think that this will be a fantastic occasion which people of all ages will be able to enjoy.
We held a civic beacon-lighting event at Ayscoughfee last month but this saw mainly councillors attend.
We always planned to hold an event that the public could enjoy as well and now it’s been finalised I’m really looking forward to it.
