It’s cheers all round in Gainsborough this month - in more ways than one.
Anyone returning ‘home’ to Lincoln after spending a few years away, or tourists who haven’t visited for a some time, have been known to gasp when they spot the countless changes to the city’s skyline. But even as they are taking stock of the changes their eyes are inevitably drawn further, to the multi-million pound investments which are still taking shape.
Market towns have to work harder than many other destinations when it comes to maintaining vital shops and services – but it can be surprising to learn what is happening ‘behind the scenes.’
If there’s one thing that Louth is justifiably proud of it is its unique sense of identity. And there’s a real determination among members of the local community and long-standing traders to preserve that – whilst acknowledging that it is also vital to move with the times.
This charming town at the gateway to the Lincolnshire Wolds, attracts thousands of visitors from North Lincolnshire and beyond, who are keen to discover its shops and vibrant street markets.
