The Editor's Letter


I really hope we’ve turned a corner now and Summer is finally here! Can I put my thick coats away now? Hello to you all and I think you will agree how wonderful our front and back covers look! A huge thank you to Kirton Primary school for their help in distributing our competition entries. We would like to say a very well done to our Winner, Casey Jane Vicarey and our 4 Runners Up. They will each receive a Waterstones voucher.

So, Summer 2024 will bring us Euro 2024, the Olympics and the General Election. I can’t pick which one of these will be the most entertaining if I’m honest, I’ll let you decide! This is issue is a bumper 36 pages again and I’m really happy to see so many contributions and Summer events!

This month’s Meet the Locals features Grandma’s Pudding in Friskney! A wonderful café run by adults with learning disabilities. Please see more on Page 5! We are looking for more participants for our Meet the Locals features. This is a full page of FREE publicity so please get in touch if you are interested! We can advise on wording and you don’t need a qualification in creative writing to take part!

Kirton Town Hall is at the very heart of our village (in more ways than one). I am sure many of you have attended at least one event held there in the past few years. The Management Committee are a very friendly bunch of people who are truly dedicated to serving the community and are always looking for new ideas. If you can spare some time to help out, please read more on Page 11.

As always, please send through any ideas or thoughts to me on Editor@kirtonnews.co.uk

I hope you all have a wonderful Summer and I’ll see you again in September!
