A Lincolnshire orthopaedic consultant has been awarded a visiting professorship from the University of Lincoln.
Mr Paul Lee, orthopaedic consultant at Grantham and District Hospital was awarded the accolade by the University, in part for his contribution towards the new MSc in Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine programme run by the University of Lincoln.
Programme Leader and Director for Education at the university, Dr Mark Smith said: “This is an exciting partnership between the University and United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT), providing professional development pathways for healthcare professionals. Working closely with Professor Lee and his colleagues we have brought together a team of experts who will bring cutting edge approaches to practice in the field of musculoskeletal and sports medicine.”
With a career spanning 17 years, Professor Lee has been with ULHT since 2017 and has already set up the Grantham Trauma Society and is making great strides in developing education programmes.
This has also led to Professor Lee being appointed as the speciality associate specialist (SAS) tutor at the Trust, meaning he will be providing training for doctors of the future.
Professor Lee said, “We have a great opportunity to develop centres of excellence in Lincolnshire, Grantham hospital is in a perfect location to drive this development.”
He was also recently awarded with a certificate for the most downloaded research paper for work conducted around knee pain by The Surgery Journal.

Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF) comprises of two Grantham-based schools, Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School. They cater for pupils between the ages of 3 and 19 with moderate to severe learning difficulties and complex needs
Staff from the schools have organised a big fundraiser to raise money for an outdoor amphitheatre for their pupils.
James Ellis – Headteacher, Ashley Caress – Deputy Headteacher, Toby Ellis – Instructor, and Darren Wilson – Financial Analyst, are attempting the #greatGANFrun – a relay-run of 120 miles in 24 hours, across Lincolnshire!
They all felt passionately about a project at their Forest School. The pupils have created a make shift stage so they can perform in the outdoors to an audience. This has proved very successful and is helping immensely with pupil self-esteem and well-being, but they need to raise £2,000 to install a safer, sturdier, stage and seating area for the pupils.
James, Ash, Toby and Darren will begin their 24hour Relay-Run on Friday 20th July at 4pm from Ambergate Sports College in Grantham, Lincs. The relay will take them 120 miles across Lincolnshire, running from school to school across their Trust, throughout the night. They will begin in Grantham, then on to Caythorpe, Spilsby, Boston, Spalding, and back to Grantham. All within 24 hours!
During these times of austerity, they all believe strongly in providing over and above the national curriculum for our pupils, and GANF Schools are hoping the #greatGANFrun will result in invaluable funds to install the new mini amphitheatre for the children.
They have a fundraising page set up, if you would like to sponsor them please use this link:
GANF Schools would like to thank anyone who can offer support and wish the runners good luck!!!

A bronze statue of the country’s first female Prime Minister, The Rt Hon Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven LG, could be erected in Grantham if agreement can be reached between a number of organisations, it has been announced today.
Grantham Community Heritage Association (GCHA), which runs the Grantham Museum, and South Kesteven District Council are currently in discussion with The Public Memorials Appeal, which commissioned the 10.5ft high bronze statue of the late Prime Minister.
The organisations say that the statue would not only be a fitting tribute to a unique political figure, but that it could provide a welcome boost to the town’s economy from visitors on both sides of the debate who come to find out more about her legacy.
Margaret Hilda Thatcher (nee Roberts) was born and raised in Grantham and attended Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, before gaining a scholarship to study at Oxford University. Her father Alfred, a grocer, was Mayor from 1945 to 1946. She entered the House of Lords in 1992.
The Grantham Community Heritage Association, a volunteer-run Educational Charity, launched a project to raise funds for a statue in 2012, with a proportion of each donation going towards funding the educational work of the Grantham Museum. It is hoped that this and future fundraising will help secure the future of the Grantham Museum, which houses a permanent Margaret Thatcher exhibition.
Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990. Five years on from her death in April 2013, Lady Thatcher’s social and economic legacy continues to divide opinion, with strong feelings on both sides of the political divide.
The three organisations are currently drafting outline terms of an agreement. Formal proposals are expected to be submitted to the South Kesteven District Council Development Management Committee, where councillors will consider the application, before the end of the year.
Commenting on the proposal, David Burling, Project Director at Grantham Museum, said: “The debate about Margaret Thatcher’s legacy looks set to continue for generations to come. We want Grantham to be where that debate happens and where visitors can come to find all the facts about the UK’s first female Prime Minister.”
A spokesperson for The Public Memorials Appeal said: “We are delighted to offer the statue to Grantham on behalf of the people that have donated towards its creation, both here in Grantham and via The Public Memorials Appeal. It is a stunning statue and I think it would be absolutely fitting for it to come to Grantham. I very much hope we can make it happen.”
The Leader of South Kesteven District Council, Councillor Matthew Lee, said: “Margaret Thatcher was undoubtedly an enormous political figure both nationally and internationally and deserves to be recognised. I respect both sides of the argument, but whichever side you are on, I hope we can all agree that this could be very good news for Grantham’s local economy.”

Members of NCS are holding a tombola tomorrow afternoon at 1:30pm just by Isaac Newton’s statue, St Peter’s Hill.
The money raised is going to care homes around Grantham to help make it better for them giving new facilities and creating new activities for them.
Brace yourself – some scenes from the ‘disgusting’ uncut road verges around

Saw this on Denton Avenue the other day. Is it my dirty mind or could the warning in red be better phrased.
Each ride follows an attractive, traffic-free route from Lincoln to Doddington Hall, created especially for the RAF 100 celebrations.
The route takes you out along the Fossdyke Canal, then through fields and woods that once bordered RAF Skellingthorpe.
Once at Doddington Hall, there will be time for refreshments, a sweet treat or a light bite to eat before your return to the city.
Led by a Lincoln tour guide, the ride will feature interesting facts and air force anecdotes giving a true insight into how the RAF impacted on Lincoln.
lison Mackfall, Access Lincoln project co-ordinator, said: “It can be difficult to find something that all the family can enjoy during the school holidays without breaking the bank.
These free cycle rides are the ideal opportunity for you to spend time with your family and friends, see some of our beautiful countryside and get a little exercise.
“And we’ve got our fingers crossed that the weather will be on our side!”
Each ride begins at 11.30am, departing from the Lincoln Cycle Hub, located at Lincoln Railway Station, St. Mary’s Street, Lincoln LN5 7EQ. Cyclists will return to the city by 3pm.
The cycle rides are free, although donations to the Royal Air Forces Association and the Jon Egging Trust are welcome.
Each ride is limited to 20 people, and spaces are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Email [email protected] or call 01522 581907 to book your place.
Cyclists will need to bring their own bike and cycle helmet. Alternatively, you can rent a bike through the Hirebike service. Visit www.hirebikelincoln.co.uk or call 01522 370143 for further details.

I don’t know why everyone is moaning about the long grass. It is certainly well cared for along the canal between Earlesfield Lane and Trent Road…
