Happy Birthday to the Lincolnshire Wolds!

The Lincolnshire Wolds is celebrating its 50th anniversary as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and it’s an ideal opportunity to discover more about this protected, living, working and thriving landscape!

The 50th Anniversary is a chance to celebrate all that has been achieved in working to protect and enhance the Lincolnshire Wolds, its habitats and physical features, its heritage, culture, communities and management.

The care of the AONB has been entrusted to the local authorities, partner organisations, communities, and individual landowners, particularly farmers and land managers, who all play a crucial role in continuing to safeguard this unique landscape.

In recognition of the landmark jubilee, the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, the Lincolnshire Chalk Stream Project and the AONB Farming in Protected Landscapes network have worked with partners to coordinate a series of events to showcase, promote and engage with people who live, work, and visit the Lincolnshire Wolds. From walk and talks to practical tasks, they hope there is something for everyone, to acknowledge, celebrate and enjoy the AONB – a one-off special newsletter is available, with the programme of events running from April through to December – in fact 50 events for 50 years!

You are invited to join in with these events and welcome any donations to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance (LNAA), the chosen charity of the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee for this programme. Whether you live, work or visit the Lincolnshire Wolds, we hope you never need this service, but the LNAA will be by your side, bringing the equivalent of a Hospital Emergency Department to the side of the patient when you need them the most.

For further information, please contact the LWCS Office (01522) 555780 or 07958 805213, email aonb@lincswolds.org.uk
