The Editor's Letter


Hello everyone! I’ve had a count up and this is my 59th letter as Editor, (I can’t believe I have found enough to babble on about) and I’ve now been Editor of this wonderful publication for over 6 years! Time really has flown by.

In all that time, I hope you’ve been entertained and informed and as always, we welcome new ideas. Also, (I hope you agree) not many mistakes have been made but we are most definitely human! We would like to formally apologise to Kirton Parish Council for the lack of minutes in our last issue. Many eagle-eyed readers noticed that the minutes referred to Donington Parish Council. This was an error on our part and has definitely made us more aware of not just double, but triple checking everything!

Our front cover this month celebrates the Centenary of our Bowling Club. Some of you may not even realise we have a Bowling Club as it is hidden away but what a gem it is. My Mum and I visited the club recently to meet two of its members and had a wonderful chat about Kirton in years gone by and their hopes for the future. Both of my Grandparents were long serving members and looking at the many photographs on the wall in the club house was very special. They are having an open day on Sunday 30th June so why not pop down for some refreshments and a chat!

In this issue we have another book review, we hear from one of our Parish Councillors, Claire Rylott and our ‘Meet the Locals’ feature is Mark Osborne Plumbing & Heating.

We’re running another front cover competition for our July/August edition with the help of Kirton Primary School! The theme is ‘Olympic Heroes’. If you have children or grandchildren at the school, tell them to look out for an entry form! There will be prizes for the Winner and first Runner-Up!

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

Take care of yourselves and each other.
