Due to an unforeseen technical printing issue,
this month's magazine will be arriving a few days later than usual.
The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
This month I have been asked to write the welcome page. I have been lucky enough to spend the summer with the team here at ‘Your Local Lincs’ magazine before I moved on to university to study journalism. Having had this opportunity, it has given me a real sense of what journalism is all about.
Having a passion for writing and given the time of year, I have written a Halloween article for this month’s issue (page 22). To continue the Halloween trend I’ve also written an article discussing the topic of spiders which can be found on page 29.
You may notice quotes embedded throughout this issue of the magazine, these are all related to Mental Health Awareness Week which runs from Sunday 6th October until Saturday 12th October.
We’ve all received unsolicited calls at one time or another, see my article on how to be cautious when taking these calls on page 64.
Although I’m a summer person, I’m ready for the change in seasons, its soon time for hoodies and hot chocolates and I can’t wait!
Don’t forget the clocks go back on 27th October so we gain an hour.
I hope you have a great month!
