About usVisit Scunthorpe is North Lincolnshire's only truly independent, none commercial, community news web site.
Established in January 2010 with the help of dr. pipes in the United States, we have lots of members with a wide range of views who all contribute independently with articles of their own.
You won't find dozens of adverts covering our site, or some poor attempt to promote local business services under the guise of offering a community service.
Here on VisitScunthorpe we are interested in just one thing, building an online community which is representative of the people of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and the surrounding area.
Paul. Founder Visit Scunthorpe.
