About Me


Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Gemma aka Girl Up North. I am originally from Cleethorpes and after living in London and Manchester for eight years I moved back home in 2018.

I started the blog when I lived in Manchester as I have a passion for writing. After moving back to Cleethorpes I saw how much the town had grown, the grit and determination of its residents and the sense of community in our wonderful area. I wanted to help people discover the hidden gems of Lincolnshire.
