The Lincolnshire Skies charity calendar (in support of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire air ambulance) is about to go on sale and there is a HUGE hole in the Grantham area in terms of stockists.
If anyone runs a business or knows someone who does and would be willing to stock these (no cost to yourselves and a good way to get people coming in) then please contact Rachel Rodgers asap please 😊

Having been up to ” the relief road” . .just to have a ” nosey” i came across the bottleneck, the .single carrigeway to a further roundabout.
How’s this going to work . considering all the extra development that they are hoping to build up there.
Is Grantham Honda moving or is this another LCC Highways idea, going according to plan?
What happens if a car transport turns up and there’s no room. Does he park on the road like now?
Grantham’s full of their failures!
Plan for the future don’t make me laugh.
The A1 is supposed to be closed from 8pm to 6am every night except Sunday. There are detours everywhere.
This means going to Colsterworth the back way.
Yet the past few nights and in the mornings., cars are still using it!
Has anyone any info on this so I don’t have to waste time on country roads!

Asda roundabout . .look how much space a truck needs to make this turn . .looked carefully at this today.
This roundabout is such a disaster from every view point . .stayed about an hour down there today . .there seemed to be a near-accident every five minutes.
Many motorist end up in the wrong lane – especially strangers to the town while trucks have to cross lanes to get around it.
I have a huge brain fog at the moment but I just wanted to thank everyone that helped organise the #NHSUprisingGrantham on Saturday!
Thank you to all the inspirational speakers!
Thank you to everyone else who shared the event and created footage from the day!
Two weeks organising and we got approximately 1,000 people on the streets of Grantham!
Well done to everyone involved!
We are hoping that the #NHSUprising banner will now travel to the north! More details on that as soon as we have them

During one of their most recent P.S.H.E. sessions, Class One at Grantham Prep School have been thinking about how the words we say can affect the feelings of others. Working in groups of three, the objective was to think of three sentences that would make family members at home or friends at school feel valued and happy.
There were some wonderful ideas and we thought that we would share our top three with you all.
1. I love this school because everyone is kind.
2. Thank you for helping me.
3. Come on everyone, join in because we are all friends.
Brilliant work, everyone.

These signs are all over Grantham . .Belton Lane . .Dysart Road . .and other roads.
They convey no useful information.
You’re looking at the road ahead and there is no corelation between sign and road.
There is a frightening number of useless signs around Grantham, and the important ones – the ones we need to reference – are lost in the hedge row or masked by a tree.

Brewery Hill every day
Plenty turned out for the Baby and toddlers fair at Foston today – although there were no babies for sale…
Mike Duffy says…
This truck could not offload in the loading area of Westgate because cars parked, their owners probably unaware as the sign is so small . .and is not easily seen .
I have even told people it’s a loading area . .they have been surpised as sign is so hard to see.
If I put my cynical head on for a minute, is the local authority deliberately putting up ‘difficult to see’ signs.
That may be the guidelines laid down fall within their remit but are aimed to confuse people, which provides them with a constant revenue stream.
There have been enough complaints . .kinda makes you think . .or do I just need to get out more
Another photo sent in this weekend, to add to our ever-growing list.
Went down the town today and took a few pics of the Market day with the addition of the French Market .Was nice to see a busy Market
.I think the weather helped too
Spare a thought for poor ole Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair, when he stopped off in Grantham, the other evening.
After arriving in a hotel in, he went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness.
The barman nodded and said, “That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary.”
Somewhat taken aback, O’Leary replied: “That’s very cheap,” and handed over his money.
“Well, we do try to stay ahead of the competition”, said the barman. “And we are serving free pints every Wednesdayfrom 6 pm until 8 pm. We have the cheapest beer in England”.
“That is remarkable value”, Michael comments.
“I see you don’t seem to have a glass, so you’ll probably need one of ours. That will be £3 please.”
O’Leary scowled, but paid up.
He took his drink and walked towards a seat. “Ah, you want to sit down?” said the barman. “That’ll be an extra £2. You could have pre-booked the seat, and it would have only cost you £1.”
“I think you may be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this frame please”.
Michael attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can’t squeeze in, he complains “Nobody would fit in that little frame”.
“I’m afraid if you can’t fit in the frame you’ll have to pay an extra surcharge of £4 for your seat sir”.
O’Leary swore to himself, but paid up. “I see that you have brought your laptop with you” added the barman. “And since that wasn’t pre-booked either, that will be another £3.”
O’Leary was so incensed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, “This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the manager”.
“I see you want to use the counter,” says the barman, “that will be £2 please.”
O’Leary’s face was red with rage. “Do you know who I am?”
“Of course I do Mr. O’Leary.”
“I’ve had enough! What sort of a Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!”
“Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00 am and 9.01am every morning, Mondayto Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free, until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only £1 per second, or part thereof”.
“I will never use this bar again”.
“OK sir, but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1.”
