Lincolnshire Life April 2024 – Digital Copy



With the promise of more settled weather and hopefully warmer temperatures ahead, we’re all looking forward to getting out and about, to enjoy all the county has to offer.

Our Experience Lincolnshire supplement highlights some great places to visit, both indoors and outdoors, including next month’s Lincolnshire Wolds Outdoor Festival (page 82) which offers fun for the whole family, with opportunities to try out new activities at taster sessions.

April is also a popular month to spring clean your garden – as Steffie Shields says, wave “goodbye to darkest, winter ‘deadery’” – and start planning seasonal planting for glorious colour and texture in the months ahead. Check out Steffie’s suggestions for must-visit gorgeous gardens for inspiration, or treat yourself to a relaxing day out surrounded by flora and fauna (p.28).

Recognising the importance of nature and championing its many benefits are also highlighted in Andrew Vaux’s feature about the success of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year (p.84). The Trust now cares for almost 100 nature reserves across the region and has a dedicated team of around 70 along with hundreds of passionate volunteers.

To celebrate its landmark anniversary, the Trust is launching an ambitious appeal, the Nature Recovery Fund, which aims to raise £1 million for nature conservation over the next two years, and is also calling for more volunteers to help them work towards nature’s recovery – so if you feel you can help do get in touch with them.

Also on the subject of rural life, we meet Anna and Andrew Jackson, the Lincolnshire father and daughter farming team whose pioneering processes feature in a new documentary, Six Inches of Soil (p.76).

The pair’s farming techniques at their Pink Pig Farm in Scunthorpe are highlighted in this inspiring film of three English farmers standing up against the industrial food system.

As Anna explains: “We’re doing this to make a difference – either persuading people to buy local or persuading other farmers to become regenerative. It’s nice to know that it’s happening in Lincolnshire.”

Whatever you have planned, we hope you enjoy a wonderful month.
