Did you pick up a Lincoln Loves Kids brochure last year?

If you did then you’re one of the reasons the pilot project was so successful it had a second edition commissioned.

Promoting family activities and experiences in the city and surrounding countryside, it is produced by a partnership between Visit Lincoln, Lincoln Mums and Lincolnshire County Council’s Heritage Services.

“If you know a budding history hunter or outdoor explorer who needs entertaining or want to find out what clubs and classes are available, just pick up the free 2017 Lincoln Loves Kids brochure,” says Visit Lincoln’s business development manager Clare Williams.

“All 40 pages are crammed full of ideas for places to visit, experiences you can enjoy as a family and the best places for child friendly food stops, as well as swimming classes, messy play sessions and baby massage.

“As well as working with all the venues again on this second edition, we’re also organising an event on Saturday, July 29th, in the city centre to coincide with Lincoln by the Sea.”

The new edition once again includes a competition to win a family break in Lincoln and now also includes a family “Selfie Trail”, sharing the best places in the city to capture that perfect family photo.

Lincoln Mums’s Emma Crellin says “In Lincoln we really do have the best of everything for families to enjoy.  It’s great to be involved with Lincoln Loves Kids as the guide brings all the many activities and destinations we have on offer together in one place.  It also highlights all the places where parents can use their Lincoln Mums card too!”

15,000 copies of the brochure will be distributed throughout the city – I’ll definitely be looking out for one! – and you can find out more at www.VisitLincoln.com/kids.
