The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
Following an unpredictable weather pattern in August, check out our Farming Focus on page 6 to see the effects it’s had on this year's harvest. For the history of the harvest festival take a look at our article on page 16. There is a little bit of girl power on page 10 with a closer look at women’s football. September may be your last chance to visit an open garden, see page 14 for more details.
This edition sees the start of a new article called “Let’s Talk”. We will be interviewing people from our local community and getting to know them a bit more. Catch up on our chat with Richard Sharpe from Flooring by Henton on page 24. Next month will be the turn of Sleaford Town Mayor, Adrian Snookes.
Tips on chimney safety are on page 28, as we start to think about relighting the fires! If you’re looking for fitness or friendship, encouragement or entertainment see pages 48 to 53; these show details and dates of local events and community groups that are happening.
With education back in focus this time of year, we have an article pondering the use of podcasts for students. Finally we would like to wish a great start to the new school term to all of our readers who are heading back to the class room this September.
Have a great Month!
