Its Lincolnshire Day today, and its raining! So here is a rainbow to brighten up the day.
September proved an eventful month, we had the lincs BOx Event cycle through on the 15th...
A unique event that is something for everybody who enjoys getting their exercise in beautiful countryside. Walking, running and biking options. Different distances to suit all ages and levels of fitness. Over 350 people came along and enjoyed the views, tracks and trails and the excellent food and conviviality.
All the courses were focused on the picturesque hills and valleys around Belchford and Oxcombe, in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
We use public roads and footpaths/bridle paths as little as possible, using instead areas that are normally off-limits to the general public. Private farm tracks and paths, created especially for the event and clearly way marked, will take participants into glorious areas. Running the event in September gives us the best ground conditions and access to stubble fields, maximising the areas available for our routes.
The event is run by Lincolnshire Rural Challenge, a not-for-profit company all proceeds will be used to support projects for young people in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
There are pictures and chat about the event on the facebook page so have a look and, if you didn’t come this year, put it in your calendar when we announce the date for next year.

Another event attended by our team in September was the Wolds tourism meeting hosted at South Ormsby Estate, just up the road from us. We met lots of other accommodation providers and the like and discussed promotion of our wonderful wolds area of natural beauty...
Tanya at the Old Rectory B&B gave us a tour and a cuppa.
