Exciting Times Are Ahead

Yesterday saw another Lincolnshire Young Voices committee meeting take place. All I can say is it was brilliantly crazy. Some meetings run without a hitch and some are organised chaos.We cluttered Lincoln Drill Hall café for the best part of an hour.

The Stars are Aligning

Hey, CP.Another year, another celebration day approaching. Something which used to make us run for the hills – obviously not literally. Something which would have us subconsciously quaking in our boots – literally; nine times out of ten we’d fall over.
