What you can find here
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.
Updates and Alerts. This section was 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.
During this current pandemic, which means that things are happening and changing rapidly, we will use this section to pass along information that we receive from community groups and organisations regarding their activities. Please check this section regularly for updates and pass along the information to anyone you know who does not have access to the website.
Covid-19 Community Aid and Information and WLDC and LCC Updates and Announcements section. These two sections are where we will publish information that we receive from WLDC, LCC and other groups and organisations that are specific to the pandemic.
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 previous print versions of the Welton NEWS. You will also find some of the articles that appear in the most recent print editions with photographs that were not included in the print edition due to lack of space.
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.
Classified Ads: This section also has advertisements for personal items that village residents want to sell.
Charity Events: 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; information from other government agencies (such a the Environment Agency, Highways England, etc.) are also included in this section.
Audio and Video Articles has audio files and interviews and videos from NEWS reporters and readers.
