Bourne is a small market town. which has a main ‘A’ road running through it, which links Bourne to Peterborough. Bourne has a good make up of small local businesses, which have survived the current economic climate. There are two main shopping areas with a third one recently completed on the outskirts to link with the growth of the town. There are new estates being built, including social housing, part ownership and outright buying. This brings a diverse network of families to the area.
In the local area of Bourne there are four Primary schools and two secondary schools, which are co-ed, Bourne Grammar and Robert Manning college. This is where about 2,300 students from the surrounding area attend for their secondary education. The night time economy has a number of licensed premises with only one Night Club in the Town and there are various eateries in the area.
Billingborough and Villages. There are 21 villages in the local Bourne beat area and these villages are a make up of both large and small hamlets. They are mainly linked to the farming communities. which are both arable and livestock. The larger villages have schools and small businesses supplying amenities and provision to locals, this allows local education for the families to avoid travelling in in to town.
The secondary school in Billingborough is currently going through the process of closure which will reduce revenue for the local shops. The small hamlets have only about seven or more houses in the area. Where as the larger villages have up to 3-4000 residents.
