The community magazine for Sleaford and surrounding villages
December at Your Local Lincs
So here we are at the final chapter of the year, and as is our usual aim, we’re seeing out 2023 with a bang. Yes, it’s another magazine packed full of great content: a plethora of prizes, information on local festive events, Christmas messages, and seasonal recipes that we actually made ourselves (we even provide the photographic evidence!), plus much more.
For our December Let’s Talk Local feature, we had a special visitor to the YLL office. All the way from the North Pole came Santa’s best friend in the form of Grandad Elf. We even put together a video of his visit where he performed magic tricks for us and gave us treats. Don’t just listen to me going on about it, though; Head on over to our Articles page and you will see for yourself!
In Sleaford, the month kicks off with the return of the town’s Christmas Market. There’s a notable absence in the slate of local Christmas markets this year, so it’s even bigger reason to get out there and support our own. Sleaford Town Council have already been whetting our appetite with all the stuff on the billing so we’re sure it’s going to be another great event. Don’t forget the excellent Christmas Tree Festival is also on over the whole weekend, and amongst all the decorated trees there, you’ll find one by our very selves!
As you know with us, we’re always living in the future, and currently we’re already at work on next year’s issues. Yes, we’ll be there for you again in 2024, when we’ll reach the grand age of 19 years old! This wouldn’t have been possible without the love and support you readers give us, our fantastic advertisers, our contributors, and all the staff at the magazine including the distribution team who’ll be out in the cold bringing our magazine to you. Thank you, all. We can’t wait to do it all again next year.
Remember, if you have a business you’d like on our pages, and you want to hit 2024 running, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Until next time, enjoy the magical festivities this month and let us wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2024.
YOUR LOCAL LINCS TEAM
What Our Customers 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!
‘Your Local Lincs’ have provided an excellent service for the advertising of room hire in Sleaford Town Hall, which has resulted in an even greater take up of interest and potential bookings. We received outstanding communication from start to finish and will certainly be advertising through the publication in the future.
“I decided to advertise my new business venture with Your Local Lincs, after only a few months, I am in a position where I am looking to expand the business in order to fulfill all the business that I am receiving.”
“It’s the best place to advertise – I think it’s brilliant! I don’t advertise anywhere else!”
“As our main show room is not on the high street this publication acts as our shop window to the public.”
“We’ve advertised with Your Local Lincs since it first started and we have continued to find this the most successful form of advertising.”
“Advertising with Your Local Lincs pays for itself. People like to use a local tradesman and this is the best place to advertise in our area.”
“Our recent leafletting campaign with Your Local Lincs has been a great success, with many new PC Support customers and several businesses wanting new web sites. I will definitely be using Your Local Lincs to distrubute my leaflets next time”
Recent Past Issues
Winter Clothing Donations
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.
If you have any men's winter clothes, shoes or boots that you would be happy to donate, please bring them to YLL HQ: 11 Pride Court, Pride Parkway, Sleaford, NG34 8GL. We are open Monday to Thursday 10am - 2pm. The items must be clean and in a bag, box or container that you no longer need.
Help equip men for life on the outside. Thank you.
