St Barnabas Hospice Light up a Life road closures

27th November 2017

Road closures announced in Lincoln for St Barnabas Hospice Light up a Life event.

Hundreds of families will come together tomorrow (28th November) to remember and celebrate the lives of those they love as part of the annual St Barnabas Hospice Light up a Life celebration.

Part of this celebration features the iconic Torchlight Procession, which begins at Clayton’s Sports Ground on Lee Road and ends at Lincoln Cathedral.

In order to ensure the safety of all those involved, a number of road closures and ‘no waiting/no loading at any time’ orders will be in place from 7pm to 8.30pm.

  • Bailgate
  • Castle Hill
  • Church Lane
  • Lee Road (Clayton Sports Field to Nettleham Road from 6pm to 7.20pm, and entirety of Lee Road from 7.20pm to 8pm)
  • Nettleham Road (Lee Road to Church Lane)
  • Newport (Bailgate to Rasen Lane)

Roads will re-open on a rolling basis, as soon as it is safe to do so.

Laura Stones, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“We look forward to welcoming all those attending our annual Light up a Life celebration. Unfortunately with an event this size, a certain amount of disruption is unavoidable and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

“We will endeavour to keep all closures to a minimum and re-open each road as soon as it is safe to do so.”
