A HOLIDAYING family who first discovered this area by chance have completed an epic move to a new home in the Wolds after falling in love with the scenery.

Sharron Aspden and her family moved down to East Kirkby on December 27 from their home town of Accrington, Lancashire after a love of holidaying in the area encouraged them to relocate.

“We just love the area. We’ve been holidaying in Stickney for the last four years and returning to the same place. It reminded me of the beauty of the French countryside and we just fell for the place,” said Sharron.

But what is more surprising is the fact that the family originally looked on a map and randomly chose somewhere to go camping by pointing on a map with a finger.

And Wood Farm in Stickney was chosen and is somewhere the family have been visiting ever since.

So Sharron and her husband Craig felt earlier in the year, that it would be a fantastic place to bring their four boys, Sean, 15, Connor, 13, Scott, 13 and Cody, six.

“Where we lived before was very built up and I felt that the move would bring fantastic opportunities for my family.

“It’s just a dream come true and it will be a fantastic new start for us. It all just felt right when my husband found mechanic work here and we thought we should live here.

“He’ll be continuing to do some work in Lancashire but hopefully there will be lots of demand for his trade in this area too,” explained Sharron.

Three of the boys will be attending local schools in January, including William Lovell C of E School and Stickney Primary but Sean will be staying in Lancashire with family until he finishes his GCSEs.

Craig will be working as a mobile mechanic, where he can also provide services for tyres and diagnostics.

“My husband will be able to go out and provide mechanic services to lots of rural businesses and places because he is mobile,” added Sharron.
