Lincolnshire Life April 2020 - Digital Copy
Normally, I would be anticipating the Easter season and telling you about all the wonderful events in our Diary pages. The limited choice this month reflects the obvious effects of the viral threat to all of our county communities. Thank goodness many of us can access open spaces and walks close to our doorsteps, which as we go to print is still permissible but people in vulnerable groups are bound to feel the frustration and toll of isolation.
Over the past week our team have been speaking to Lincolnshire based businesses, many of them family owned like ourselves, who are responding in the best and most human of ways, to support their staff, devise innovative products and services to help households and organisations stay safe and come through this crisis.
The launch of the Lincolnshire Life ‘Taste of Excellence’ Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards has of course been postponed until the summer because of the impact on this sector but we tell you on page 68 how companies are fighting back. Support these and other local businesses’ endeavours; buy local produce, shop local and invest in their livelihoods.
Our printed versions of Lincolnshire Life and The Lincolnshire Poacher will still be on sale and delivered to subscribers, and you can access all of our current and back copies as free downloads from our website. There are options for 3, 6, 12 or 24 month subscriptions, which you can order on our website, or by calling 01522 689671.
I have said little about our features this month so far. I joined Sean Dunderdale for breakfast at Stokes Lawn Café prior to the launch of his new breakfast show on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. Kate Chapman interviews Shona McCallin as she trains for Olympic selection and charity walker Beth Wickes as she covered the length of the national coastal path through Lincolnshire.
I have spoken to many people this month who are planning to start extensive garden and home improvement projects to keep themselves busy. Look inside to find local experts who can help you achieve your dream result.
Finally, all of the team at Lincolnshire Life send our best wishes to you our readers, contributors, sponsors and partners as the weeks unfold.
