In a celebration of youth, innovation, and community spirit, The Lincoln Museum played host to the much-anticipated Lincolnshire 30 Under 30 reception organised by The Lincolnite and MyLocal.

The event, which has quickly become a hallmark of local pride, brought together the region’s most promising young individuals, all under the age of thirty, who have made significant strides in their respective fields.

Now in its fifth year, the Lincolnshire 30 Under 30 serves as an opportunity to celebrate some of the most talented and inspiring young people in our county, from business leaders to community stars, and everything in between.

Horses are the stars at the heart of a growing Lincolnshire enterprise that is transforming the lives of people struggling to get their lives back on track.

GLINT is the brainchild of Yorkshire born coach, hypnotherapist and NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) practitioner Heidi Dawson, who found great comfort in spending time with horses when she suffered bullying as a child.
