Road closures announced in Lincoln for St Barnabas Hospice Light Up a Life event
Hundreds of families will come together tonight (22 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 6pm to 9pm.
They are as follows;
• Castle Hill
• Church Lane
• Lee Road
• Nettleham Road (Lee Road to Church Lane)
• Newport (Bailgate to Rasen Lane)
• Minster Yard
Roads will re-open on a rolling basis, as soon as it is safe to do so.
Becky Otter, Event Manager 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 avoidable 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.”
For further information on the road closures, contact the Greater Lincoln & Gainsborough Highways Division on 01522 782070.
Lincoln’s Light Up a Life celebration begins at 6pm at Our Lady of Lincoln Church followed by a torchlight procession from Clayton’s Sports Ground, Lee Road, Lincoln LN2 4BH at 7.30pm.
The event is free to attend and open to everyone, regardless of faith. There is no need to book in advance.
