Lincolnshire Life April 2019 - Digital Copy
A warm welcome to our April issue.
The first thing which comes to mind about the start of this month is April Fool’s Day – and no, we haven’t embedded any spoof stories for you – but for the team at Lincolnshire Life it heralds the official launch of our quest to find the finest food, drink and hospitality businesses in the county.
We are celebrating 22 years of our ‘Taste of Excellence’ competition this year and we need your help to nominate your favourite venues, eateries, confectioners, accommodation and produce. There is a nomination form with this issue or you can vote via our website or social media channels. With the Easter break and summer holidays ahead we know you will discover some new favourites to share with us. You can read more about the Awards for 2019 on page 65.
Kate Chapman has been in interview overdrive this month catching up with Louis Rudd MBE, the second person to complete a solo, unsupported crossing of Antarctica and Nicholas Parsons, the nonagenarian actor and presenter. Kate also spoke to artist Nick Orr who creates exquisite artworks cut from single feathers. The feature begins on page 87.
Our Easter issue would not be complete without chocolate and I needed no persuasion when it came to visiting No.12 Chocolatier in Kirton in Lindsey. Paul North and his family have made quite an impression in the last twelve months with their handmade truffles and bars. My visit did include some sampling – hard work but someone has to do it! My story is on page 74.
I am invited to visit many interesting buildings in the county. This month this has included St Margaret’s, Thimbleby, one of the county’s most finely appointed churches and then in contrast, Lily’s Lavender Hut, at Corby Glen, which is, as far as I and they know, Lincolnshire’s only wooden village shop. Both, in their own way, are hubs of their local communities and have been given new leases of life.
Finally, if you call our office to renew your subscription or speak to members of our friendly sales, studio or admin teams, we have a new telephone number for you to make a note of: 01522 689671. All our other contact details remain the same.
We hope you have a great month and a very happy Easter.
