lincolnloveskids2It’s half term already!

Are you a parent who can’t wait for the start of the holidays or who dreads the sound of the school bell tolling to signal the suspension of classes?

The mini ones are still too small for the academic year to have truly imprinted itself on our lives as yet, although some of their activities are effected, but we know exactly what it’s like to need to find entertainment to keep little hands busy.

If our It’s Halloween season! event listing isn’t comprehensive enough for you, or you’d really like to find a few things non-Halloweeny to occupy your children with, then you might want to pick up a new source of information on “family-friendly activities and experiences” in the city which has recently been produced by Visit Lincoln, Lincoln Mums and Lincolnshire County Council’s heritage services.

“Lincoln Loves Kids 2016-17 is packed with information about what’s on in the area, from visitor attractions, to natural spaces, to classes and services locally, including where to use your Lincoln Mums card of course!” says Lincoln Mums’ Emma Crellin.

“There is also a kids’ eye view of what’s on offer and my own editor’s picks of local highlights.”

An initial print run of 15,000 copies has been distributed throughout the area, including to all Visit Lincoln and Lincoln Mums partners.  The guide includes sections such as History Hunters, Stage & Story and All Get Moving.

There’s also a page of money saving vouchers and a competition (deadline November 25th) to win a Festive Family Break in December which includes tickets to a performance of the already sold out The Snowman at Lincoln Cathedral, so it’s definitely worth picking up a copy if you see one when you’re out and about.

I’d love to know where you like to find out about things happening in and around your area?  The local newspaper, radio, Facebook, Twitter, venue leaflet racks, from other parents?  Leave me a comment below or tweet me @TheMiniMalpi
