The county’s economy chiefs are confident “The Sun Will Rise Again” over Lincolnshire and keen photographers are being offered the chance to snap their way to a big prize.

As the Summer Solstice approaches on Saturday June 20, The Lincolnite and Lincolnshire Reporter in association with Lincolnshire County Council and Seascape Cafe, are calling on budding snappers to celebrate all that is good about our tourism and hospitality sector.

The winners will be awarded a pair of passes to Lincoln Castle and a £20 voucher for lunch at Seascape Cafe at the North Sea Observatory in Chapel St Leonards.

Not only that, but the winning pictures will also be placed on public display at The Collection in Lincoln.

Councillor Colin Davie, Lincolnshire County Council’s economy chief said: “COVID-19 has had a very significant impact on the tourism, hospitality and leisure businesses upon which the Lincolnshire economy relies heavily.
