The new Lincoln LNER Azuma service is a 👍

Got the say that the new Lincoln LNER Azuma service is a 👍 from us at theBythams. Used it for the very first time on Tuesday.

It’s so much faster than having to change at Sleaford, when using East Midlands Railway. Which use to take around 1 hour 20 mins, sometimes even longer.

The new service via Newark North Gate, only takes around 43 minutes.

So can’t wait, till the Saturday and Sunday service, starts in December, just in time for the Lincoln Christmas Market.

If you have used the new service, please do comment and let us know, what you think!!

Friends of Alan Wood remember him with a pint and a packet of Mini Cheddars at his local pub

Alan Wood was killed in his Lound bungalow on October 23, 2009, and colleagues and friends from where he used to work at Sainsbury’s in Bourne gathered at a special reunion at the Willoughby Arms pub in Little Bytham tonight (Wednesday, March 23).

They were joined by his younger sisters, Janice and Sylvia.
