Lincolnshire Life May 2022 – Digital Copy
Welcome to our biggest issue of the year so far. I am not sure I have room here to mention all the contents but we at Lincolnshire Life hope you enjoy browsing and reading at your leisure.
Kate Chapman caught up with the fastest man on ice in our county, Lamin Deen. In February, Lamin was part of the Great Britain four-man bobsleigh team who took part in the Winter Olympics in Beijing. The adrenaline rush of reaching speeds of up to 85 mph downhill is well described by Lamin. Read more on page 60. Kate has also been looking at how Moulton will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the village’s historic windmill, as well as marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Barbara Young interviewed Sally and Tony Gratwick, founders of Bundle and Rust. The couple are based in Barton upon Humber and make a range of natural goat’s milk soaps and beauty products. Woodhall Spa based Pogle’s Seeds feature in Barbara’s second article. Their wildflower seed business has gone from strength to strength as people appreciate the ecological benefits of growing native flower species. Read more on page 54.
If you have children of school age, we have a bumper education supplement in this issue. There is a wealth of excellent opportunities for learning inside and just beyond the county, whatever a person’s age or interest. We hope this issue helps you make the right choice, whatever the next stage holds in store.
We are really looking forward to the return of the Lincolnshire Show after a two-year break. We are welcoming our friends from Downtown, Grantham to our stand and courtesy of them we have the most amazing competition for you to take part in when you come to see us. There are details of the luxurious Ibiza Corner Seating Set worth £2,299 on page 165. It will be the stand-out feature in any garden this summer, so be sure to visit our stand DZ16 on Avenue 10 for your chance to win.
Finally, courtesy of the Lincolnshire Show, we have three family tickets to be won. Each ticket entitles up to 2 adults and 3 children to attend the Show and experience a great day out. You will find details of how to enter on page 118.
Enjoy a most wonderful month.
