It was decided that a commemorative bench will be purchased and installed at Watermill Road, as well as a commemorative sign for Jubilee Way.

Other grants will go to the Horncastle Air Cadets for £100 as a thank you for their efficient marshalling at the Scrivelsby Beacon Lighting, as well as a donation to the Horncastle History and Heritage Society to create printed booklets dedicated to 70 years of Horncastle life.
