The key to making a good first impression

Are you – or someone you know – thinking about renting out a house or flat?

There’s no shortage of advice online and on TV programmes about how to make the best impression when viewers arrive to see what’s on offer, of course…

But this week’s guest on Girls Around Town has a few top tips of her own to share when she’s live in the studio on Sunday!

Joining June in the second hour of the show, Gemma Atkinson will be explaining why and how she switched from being a social worker to set up Flying Keys, working with both landlords and tenants in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

Based on her experience over the last couple of years, she’ll be highlighting some of the key things you should consider doing before those potential renters step through the front door to check out whether your property is the one they want to move into.

What is it they’re looking at and for? How important is kerb appeal?

And does it really make a difference if your home smells of freshly baked bread or brewing coffee?!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11am to hear those top tips from Gemma when you Put On Your Sunday Best this weekend.

A new chapter for Boston’s Book Festival

It’s all about Boston on Girls Around Town this Sunday morning.

But if previous on air chats with guest Jane Keightley are anything to go by, her conversation with June in the second hour of the show is sure to include a quick virtual trip over to Italy as well!

Freelance travel writer and tour guide Jane will be back in the studio to share some of the highlights of the past year, together with details of what’s on the cards for 2022. And top of both lists will no doubt be the Boston Book Festival she launched in 2021 that she’ll be bringing back to her Lincolnshire home town this September.

Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best by tuning to 107.8FM or listening on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11.10am this weekend to find out what’s in store for book lovers of all ages at this year’s event, along with details of how to keep updated as the plans progress…

And hear what Jane has to say about the latest string added to her bow – a new job at one of the Book Festival’s venues, the 300-year old Fydell House in the heart of Boston’s Cultural Quarter, where she’s just taken on the role of receptionist, tour guide and wedding organiser!

Putting wellness at the top of the list this weekend

Looking for a few new ways to boost your physical or mental wellbeing?

Then you need to Put On Your Sunday Best as usual to hear what guest Johanna Thompson has to say when she joins June in the first hour of this week’s Girls Around Town.

Another familiar voice on the show, Johanna will be back from just after 10.20am with details of the Wellness Network‘s latest event taking place over in Lincoln on Sunday 26 September

On the phone this time though, as she has a pressing engagement at 11am running one of the group’s regular online meetings!

Featuring hand-picked speakers, experts in exercise and nutrition, taster treatments, some of the latest vegan products for inside and out and ways to help and enhance your mind, the Lincoln Health & Wellness Show is being held at The Bentley Hotel & Spa in South Hykeham, which local listeners will know is just a quick drive up the A46 from Newark.

Take that trip towards the end of the month and, among the presentations on the programme, you’ll finds topics as diverse as where to start with a plant-based diet, how being selfish is the most selfless thing you can do, using reflexology to support menstrual and reproductive health…

And even one intriguingly titled A slouchy sweater and a little bit of pixie dust!!

Tickets are on sale now via the Wellness Network’s website, priced just £3.50 each if you book online by 4pm on Saturday 25 September or £5 if you’re paying cash on the day.

What’s more, the event will be supporting The Lincoln Foodbank, with 50p from each ticket sold, together with all the proceeds from a raffle on the day which Johanna says will be featuring some amazing prizes, going to this invaluable local charity.

If this sounds like something you and your friends would benefit from and enjoy, make sure you’re listening on 107.8FM, on the apps, on Alexa or online from 10am this weekend to find out more…
