Lincolnshire Life January 2020 - Digital Copy
It is always a pleasure to say our first ‘hello’ of the year to new subscribers. We hope you were delighted to find your gift subscription in your Christmas stocking and you can be sure we will be here to keep you entertained and informed about all things Lincolnshire in the months ahead.
Kate Chapman’s interviews are with inspirational county people, beginning with Mark Wilkinson, one of the engineers on TV’s Scrap Kings. Recycling and upcycling are activities we can all engage with more actively and Mark has made a career from turning scrap into desirable, functional objects. His story begins on page 42.
Kate’s next story features south Lincolnshire resident Daniel Parker, who was involved in a life-changing accident last year. Now paralysed, the pigeon racing community have stepped up to help him continue pursuing his childhood passion. Read more on page 86.
I spent a very enjoyable afternoon with our gardening correspondent, Steffie Shields, helping to judge the 2019 Lincolnshire Gardens Trust Photographic Competition. It was wonderful to see so many entries snapped in photographers’ own gardens and also gardens which open to the public for charity each year. You can see the winning images on page 36 and our front cover of deer in Normanby Park was taken by Elisabeth Morris.
New Year can be a time of reflection (I won’t say resolutions), getting to grips with some of the excesses of the festive season or that sluggish winter mood. We have ideas to improve your wellbeing in this issue which could help boost your motivation.
The new school term will soon begin and the focus will be on visiting and deciding on ‘where next?’ Our education supplement features a broad range of schools and learning establishments across the county. Whether you are looking for opportunities for your children, grandchildren or yourself it is true that education is never wasted.
Finally, myself and all of our team at Lincolnshire Life wish you the happiest and healthiest year ahead.
