Loving Wainfleet life

I WAS so happy for our eldest daughter to move to Lincolnshire to the Victorian town of Wainfleet – Wainfleet All Saints to give it its full name.

Our son-in-law bought a business in the town very much run down, they set to and revitalised it. On our first visit I thought what a delightful town it was with shops providing daily needs with its petrol filling station right in the middle of the High Street where you are served by the owner, all very 1930s.

The square is what every town in Britain would like, big enough for any event, market stalls, the clock is well positioned.

It has its own brewery, Batemans and can boast its very own railway station – the Victorians really did have vision.

Our daughter Jayne now lives in Burgh-le-Marsh, when we visit three or four times a year we always call into Wainfleet All Saints – the now well established auction held on Friday mornings attracts a good following. What a great idea to pass on items we have no further use of. It is a must for my wife Sonja and I; we just love it. I just wanted to tell your readers of the wonderful activities you have right on your doorstep – so well done Wainfleet, well done East Lindsey. Look after Lincolnshire for we Midlanders just love being with you
