What you can find on the website

The Welton NEWS is a monthly magazine produced by and for the residents of Welton-by-Lincoln, a village about seven miles north-east of Lincoln in Lincolnshire. Issue 1 of the NEWS was distributed in June 1999 and it has been published every month since then. More than 2,000 copies are distributed free-of-charge to every household in Welton every month by a group of volunteers.

We are proud that the NEWS is entirely self-financed through advertising and is produced by a group of volunteers, enabling us to maintain independence from any single body or group. We thank everyone who advertises with us and allows us to continue.

Welton NEWS is a not-for-profit organisation and, over the years, has donated any surplus to a range of local good causes.

Our website has a number of different sections that we hope you will find useful and informative:

What’s On provides information about upcoming events taking place in Welton and the surrounding areas, and the Village Notice Board, which is a listing of events and the dates they are taking place.
If you are planning an event, please review the Village Notice Board to find out if there is a potential clash of dates with another event. Once you’ve decided on a date, contact the editor to ensure your event is included in the What’s On section and on the Village Notice Board.

Activities provides contact numbers for the various groups and organisations in the village, as well as the churches, councils and emergency services.
Organisations change personnel and contact details from time to time so we rely on village organisations to advise us of changes to ensure that the What’s On and Activities pages remain up-to-date.

Current and Past Issues has PDFs of the latest Welton NEWS as well as previous issues. Articles included in the latest issue will also be published here as separate items.

Advertising has information on how to advertise with the NEWS, both in the print version and on the website, as well as current advertising prices. A list of current advertisers and copies of their adverts can be found in this section.
This section also has advertisements for personal items that village residents want to sell (classified ads).
Events being held by charity organisations, not-for-profit groups and village organisations are advertised here.

Photo Gallery has hundreds of photographs taken at events around the village, including many that did not appear in the print issues because there wasn’t enough room for them and some that appeared in black and white in the print issue.

Welton-by-Lincoln Parish Council section contains information about parish council meetings (full council meetings as well as committee meetings) and information about the parish council office; committee meeting reports that are not included in the print version of the magazine; and information from other government agencies (such as the Environment Agency, Highways England, etc.).

WLDC and LCC Updates and Alerts is where we publish information that we receive from West Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council and Lincoln City Council that we think will be useful or of interest to residents of Welton.

Audio and Video Articles has audio files and interviews and videos from NEWS reporters and readers.

Updates and Alerts. This section is intended as a place to notify you of things that happen between issues of the NEWS (for example, road closures) and things such as scam alerts received from Action Fraud or the Lincolnshire Police. The Police File that used to be printed in the NEWS is now only available on this page.
