The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
After three months away, it is good to be back in print and delivering the July edition of Your Local Lincs magazine. Who would have known that this year was going to turn out the way it has? We know it has not been easy for anyone, both on a personal and professional level. Things are still not back as they were, and I think it might take time before they are.
During lockdown, we have all heard some amazing stories or courage, help and care for others. Sleaford Community Larder is just one of those organisations that has helped to feed those in need throughout the lockdown and are still doing so. Their update is on page 40. Your Local Lincs has shared our own lockdown story as well as those of some of our readers on pages 6 and 34-37.
If like me, you have enjoyed baking during lockdown; our recipe for tasty Gin and Tonic Lemon Drizzle will keep your taste buds happy. See page 26. The competition page is back, and this month, Vintage Frills are delighted to offer a Cream Tea for two delivered directly to your home. To enter the competition, see page 30.
Remember to support local businesses as much as you can, this will help them get back on their feet again after enforced time away.
Your Local Lincs would like to thank all our advertisers that have made this edition possible and hope to be able to welcome back those clients who are not able to advertise yet due to
the current restrictions.
Best wishes and stay safe.
See you next month
