to be a two week event packed full of walks for all ages and abilities. This year’s festival will be organised by Hill Holt Wood, North Kesteven District Council’s new Countryside service provider and are looking forward to building on the success of this already established event.
Steve Donagain, CEO at Hill Holt Wood said:
“We are really excited to be delivering the new countryside NK services for North Kesteven District Council. The walking festival has been a big success and we aim to make it bigger and better every year so more people get to enjoy our beautiful countryside.”
“We’re delighted to confirm our commitment to such a well supported, high quality event here in Lincolnshire. Our aim is to get more people, more active, more often and the Spires and Steeples Challenge is a great way to encourage people to get out and about with the added benefit of being able to take in some of the most picturesque surroundings in the country.”
Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum commemorates RAF 100 with its exhibition honouring the heroism of RAF aircrew during World War II
“This exhibition has been the most challenging to date in many ways, not least the subject matter. To try to pick a limited number of men to cover in depth from the many, who did enormously brave acts has been difficult, but I hope our selection shows just how utterly brave and in some cases selfless the men of the air are.“
“We’re very proud that North Kesteven is right at the heart of ‘Bomber County’ and it is important that exhibitions like this allow everyone the opportunity to learn about the bravery of the RAF airmen who have fought in World War II. Their heroism needs to be remembered and respected for generations to come. The RAF 100 anniversary makes this even more poignant."
