The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
Summer is in full swing and with its long, sunny days and muggy nights, I know what Nat King Cole meant when he sang about those ‘lazy, hazy, days of summer’. This holiday season is a time to unwind, the younger members of our community filling the endless days with fun and adventures without the structure of a Monday-Friday school routine. Trips to the seaside, long country bike rides, and water pistol games were the sorts of things that would fill my school holidays. Although, more so when I got older, I would frequently lend a hand at home, painting the garden fence or washing the family car.
If you’re looking for activities to fill these lazy, hazy days, then the August edition of Your Local Lincs is packed full of ideas. We devote pages 36 and 37 to suggestions for free or low-cost things to do, but throughout the magazine you will see many other ideas, such as animal-related activities (you can in fact win a family pass to Wolds Wildlife Park!), or some history in our local gem that is Cogglesford Watermill, Sleaford (they have milling days going on plus a fun Molly Mouse trail to keep the young ones amused). There are village fetes taking place, open gardens, wellbeing workshops, antique fairs, music and a classic automobile show. Okay, that last one, taking place on Lafford Terrace in Sleaford, is scheduled for the beginning of September, but that isn’t far away.
And although these lazy, hazy days of August drift along dreamily, we can’t take the eye off the months that are patiently waiting in the wings. Come September, the kids will be going back to school, the flocking to airports and ferry terminals (or maybe just Skeggie) will lessen, and it’ll be time to knuckle down once more. Which means that NOW is the ideal time to start thinking of your next advertising campaigns so that when the autumn months roll along, you’ll hit the ground running. So, as ever, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to see what we can do for you. September is filling up fast so in between those lemonades and ice creams, do remember to drop us a line. So many of our advertisers come back to us to say what a difference their adverts make.
YOUR LOCAL LINCS TEAM
What Our Customer's Say
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.
Every time I speak to customers they say they got my number from this magazine!
The advertising is working really well in the Local Lincs Magazine!
