Lincolnshire Life November 2022 – Digital Copy



A warm welcome to readers of my first issue as editor of Lincolnshire Life having recently taken over the reins from Caroline, who I’m happy to say will still be working alongside our great team.

This month sees our sell-out Lincolnshire Life Taste of Excellence Awards Evening which takes place on Thursday 3rd November at The Drill, Lincoln, where nominees in each of the 14 categories find out the worthy winners and runners-up. The competition to be crowned champions of Lincolnshire food, drink and hospitality is just as hot as ever.

the winners in next month’s issue, so if you can’t join us in person on the night, make sure you get your copy.

We’re always pleased when Lincolnshire folk get in touch to tell us about their achievements and share their passion for the county and all that it offers.

up with children’s author Hannah Gold, whose book The Last Bear is a heart-warming story of kindness and magical adventure, aimed at 8-12 year olds. Since its publication, Hannah’s story has won numerous awards and she’s also secured a three-book deal, proving that if you’re passionate about a dream, you can make it happen!

In spite of the shorter days, November is the perfect time to enjoy time outdoors planning your spring garden. On page 24 Steffie Shields discusses therapeutic planting and says there is no better way to cheer yourself up than by planting warm coloured tulip bulbs.

At this time of year thoughts also turn to celebrating Christmas with friends and family and part of that fun is planning festivities and making lists in preparation for the big day. To help inspire you, inside this issue you will find Downtown’s Christmas 2022 brochure, the latest collections from Lucks of Louth plus our Lincolnshire Life Gift Guide, packed with ideas and suggestions.

still stuck for presents, why not gift one of our subscriptions, or choose from the local books and Lincolnshire Flag gifts available via our online shop.

Enjoy this month’s issue and don’t forget, if you’ve got an interesting tale, please do get in touch!
