The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages

Autumn is well and truly here and busy showing us the beautiful colour changes of the season. I really love the autumn months before the start of the winter, time to start getting cosy as the nights draw in. This autumn, will be different to any other we have experienced before: Covid-19 still dictating what activities and social events we are able to participate in. I do hope that you are all doing okay and managing under the ever changing circumstances.

With this is mind, we all know that it will be a very different Halloween for children and young people this year; very little house to house visits dressed in costumes collecting sweets. Please see our articles on pages 33 and 42 for ideas on ways in which to still celebrate and enjoy the evening.

Let’s Talk Local this month is with friendly local dentist, Kajal Bathia; she tells us a little bit more about herself and her passion for dentistry.

It’s National Poetry Day on Thursday 1st of October and the theme this year is ‘vision’. It encourages the promotion of public knowledge and enjoyment for the world of poetry-see our article on page 44.

With the cancellation of the main poppy appeal this year (there will be no poppies for sale publically through the Royal British Legion). Small local business, ethelandgeorge.co.uk will be making and selling their own poppies for you to buy, with the profits all going to the poppy appeal. See their article on page 36.

Best wishes
