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 but after moving back to North East Lincolnshire 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 North East Lincolnshire.
