The Editor's Letter


It feels like AGES since I last wrote to you all! I hope you have had a lovely Summer, even managed the odd day out or even a little break away.

As you can see from our front cover and starting from October’s issue, we will be delivering the magazine to you all again (I couldn’t think of a better way to announce this as I don’t have all my distributor’s telephone numbers)! The local businesses in Kirton have been unbelievably helpful since March 2020 and we literally couldn’t have done it without them. What is rare about Kirton News and what we pride ourselves in is being able to deliver copies to every home in the village (nearing 2500 homes now). If you are a distributor and can resume your current route, then nothing will have changed. Kirton Town Hall will be open on the following days (this will increase as time goes on):-
Mondays 4.30pm to 7pm
Wednesdays 10am to 11am
Fridays 9.15am to 11.15am and 2pm to 4pm

You will be able to collect your copies from the entrance hall as before (after the last Thursday of the month). If you don’t feel you can continue, please know that your help was very much appreciated and please contact me on my email below to let me know. Also, if you would like to help out with deliveries on a route in Kirton, please do the same using the email below.

Recently I was given another copy of ‘The Church in Kirton’ by Ann Booth, this time dating from October 1981, now 40 years ago. Advertisers including Gerald H. Nix (decorator), Frank’s Fish Bar, Simpsons (Fruit & Veg), Lewis & Kime, Joan’s Hair Fashions and N. Moore & Son filled the pages along with numerous events being held at St Peter & St Paul’s Church, the Methodist Church, The Chestnuts and the Town Hall from organ recitals to a report on the Parish church Summer Fete which was opened by the then new GP in Kirton, Dr Jennifer S. Ponsford.

This issue we’re talking to Karin Christensen, a wonderful local artist who is a member of the Lincolnshire Artists Society and who also holds classes in watercolour painting and sketching! Turn to page 10 to find out more.

I’m always contactable on Editor@kirtonnews.co.uk.
