The Editor's Letter


Hello! After a little Summer break we are back. I hope you have all managed to stay well and sane! The glut of good weather over the last week has definitely helped! Side note: I’ve had a haircut so I can finally consider myself presentable to the outside world!

Has anything changed much since July? I’m definitely sensing a little respite in the air…….. even through my mask I’m sure I can feel it! Masks have become the norm now haven’t they and however annoying they can be, it’s a very small price to pay for ours and everyone else’s safety.

Have any of you been out for a meal yet? The handful of places I have visited, locally and during a few days away in Warwick were set out so sensibly and so much thought had been put into everyone’s safety and enjoyment in equal measure. I certainly don’t envy them but think they’ve done brilliantly.

Our local shops and businesses have been constantly supportive in making sure the magazines are available throughout the village for your convenience. We are still working towards delivering them out to you as soon as the Town Hall is safely open for our distributors to use as the collection base once again.

Two new businesses have opened up in the village, PWR Interior Finishes and Big Boy Takeaway. It’s great to see them up and running and we wish them every luck for the future.

In this edition we’re talking to Lee Winter from PWR Interior Finishes in our Meet the Locals feature and next month we will be talking to Gemma Haines from Phil Haines Coaches. If you know of a new business or someone with a connection to Kirton who would like to take part in Meet the Locals please do contact me.

Thank you to David Taylor for our front cover.

As always I’m contactable on Editor@kirtonnews.co.uk. See you in October!
