The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
Your Local Lincs magazine will remain open during the 2021 January & February lockdown. The office and warehouse will operate an appointment service for delivery of booked leaflets to be dropped off. Sadly we can no longer receive any more rotary shoe boxes or mens’ clothes for rehabilitating ex-offenders. Distribution will continue as normal as we are an essential community service. We continue to adhere to strict Covid-19 Government guidelines. We are under constant review and should official guidelines change then we will respond accordingly.
As I write the welcome page this month, we are still amid lockdown, but I am hopeful that we will see an end to some of the restrictions soon. The major undertaking of getting the nation vaccinated is well underway, I believe I am to be called for mine by May and I can’t wait! I never thought I would be excited about receiving any vaccine. With Spring arriving, I do feel a sense of optimism in the air, and love seeing the spring flowers start to bloom.
There are some interesting articles this month within our pages, Caroline, from The Book Professional, talks to us about the art of bookbinding on pages 12-13. It has been a dying craft but is being revived by enthusiasts like Caroline. Dave’s Spherical Photography shares his passion for photographing wildlife and gives some excellent tips to our readers- see page 16.

Vet’s Voice this month, looks at the causes of pet anxiety, which has been on the rise during this pandemic. Their article is found on page 30.
I love our recipe on page 40 for Steak and Ale Pie, I can confirm it does taste as good as it looks! Why not give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
Local Heckington resident, Tim Grigg shares his desire to leave a legacy for our environment by planting more trees. He has formed a group called ‘Trees for Heckington’. See what he has to say on page 58.
Stay safe and see you next month.
