Talks to celebrate RAF 100th anniversary

Adult Education Horncastle are hosting a Festival of Talks 2018, starting in April. “This year we celebrate each of the 100 years of the RAF. QEGS Horncastle continues on its well established and glorious journey alongside the RAF in Lincolnshire. Being well placed in the centre of the county QEGS has welcomed hundreds of air force children through its doors, where it has nurtured them for however long their parents have been stationed in the area.

Keep a look out on all media for updates…”

Seals at Donna Nook

For the past few weeks, hundreds of grey seals have been “hauling up” on the dunes at Donna Nook, near North Somercotes, as they do every year at this time. If you want to see them with their newborn, now’s the time to make the trip – they will be going back to sea as soon as their newborn are ready.

Donna Nook Nature Reserve is managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife trust, whose volunteers are on hand to answer questions and make sure that both seals and humans are kept safe. You will need to travel by road – there is a car park.
