The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages

July at Your Local Lincs

July 2024 at Your Local Lincs MagazineIt’s that time of year when it really seems to hit us. We seem to say the same thing every time: how is it July already?? Into the second half of 2024 we go. Because of the extra day with this year being a leap year, the exact halfway point arrives a little later than last year, at midnight on July 1st at the end of the 183rd day to be precise. And now we’ve passed the summer solstice, the days have already started to shorten as the evenings draw in. Not that we’ll notice it this month, as we’ll be too busy keeping up with the continuation of Euro 2024, not to mention Wimbledon, and not to mention the Olympics which start on the 26th. Actually we do mention the Olympics, as you’ll see when you pick up the July YLL!

One of our favourite events from the calendar occurs this month, the Heckington Show. As ever, we’ve got tickets up for grabs in one of our competitions. The other competition this month is rather special, as it gives you the chance to see the amazing Ocean Colour Scene play at the Engine Shed in Lincoln. Yes, that’s THE Ocean Colour Scene! Just like June, this summer month really knows how to deliver as well.

If you’re currently giving yourself a team-talk and considering your tactics as you head into the second half, have you considered adding Your Local Lincs to your game plan? Whether you have a business, charity, group or event to promote, advertising on our pages can be a real game-changer, getting it under the noses of all the homes and businesses to which we deliver; that’s over 27,000 of them, and counting!

If you’ve been wondering whether advertising in our magazine is something you’d like to explore, then don’t hesitate to get in touch via your preferred communication channel. Email, telephone, Facebook, in person. it could be the most important step you take this year, and who knows where it will take you by the end of the second half…

Have a great month and we’ll see you next time.

Cogglesford Watermill Anne, NKDC Heritage Tourism and Marketing

Sleaford Town Council have been advertising with Your Local Lincs for approximately 8 years. We initially advertised to let people know about the rooms we had for hire at Sleaford Town Hall and this has progressed into us having a regular slot in the publication. We have a full news page every other month in Your Local Lincs and all our event posters are also published.

We definitely notice that residents of Sleaford and the surrounding villages are seeing what we publicise and we are also able to share the information on our social media pages using the magazine links on the Your Local Lincs website.

The publications each month are full of useful information and we would definitely recommend Your Local Lincs to anyone! The staff couldn’t be more helpful, friendly and communicative. What more could you wish for!

Sleaford Town Council Steph, Sleaford Town Council Admin Officer

Advertising in Your Local Lincs magazine has been an essential part of our marketing strategy in opening up a new Sleaford business. Response from advertising was almost immediate and played a vital part in getting us noticed in the area. The Accounts team were very flexible and helpful with their advice throughout the process.

I couldn’t be happier, I launched my new craft business with Local Lincs at the start of 2021, and within the first 3 months of adverting it generated direct custom that paid for the whole 12 month package!

I would definitely recommend a full page to help a customer understand what you offer as a business, as I found as a niche craft business it has been invaluable to help my customers understand better what I can offer, and even attract those who would not have thought of using my craft skills before.

The team at Local Lincs are fantastic and will help to identify best placement for your advertising, advise on font and picture sizes so that your advert can be seen. They will also advise the best advertising timings through the year so you can maximise your advertising package with them.

The work of Lincolnshire Action Trust is focused on the care, resettlement and rehabilitation of prisoners and those at risk of offending, as well as the welfare of their families and dependents. A significant number are released homeless and many do not have adequate clothing. To be able to walk out with the right clothing makes a huge difference. Every piece of clothing that is donated is gratefully received by the men, who don't have the means to buy anything for themselves.
