Christmas tour of Stamford with Blue Badge guide Jill Collinge




Blue Badge Tour Guide Jill Collinge will be taking people back in time with her Stamford Christmas Past tour.

The tour, which will journey through the town centre, looks at different historical houses while discussing how Stamfordians used to prepare for Christmas.

Jill, a Stamford resident who was previously a hospital cardiographer, became a Blue Badge Tour Guide more than 25 years ago and has given tours to Prince Charles and Prince Richard the Duke of Gloucester.

The tour will meet at 11am on the steps of Stamford Town Hall on Sunday (December 8) and upon return people can enjoy mulled wine and mince pies.

Jill is also training a group of guides - the Mayor's guides - who, once qualified, will also be able to carry out tours of the town.

"I want to pass on the legacy for the new training guides and pass on the information about the town. They're really working hard," added Jill.
