More photos of the Easter Egg run from Bec Henson.
260 Bikers defied the rain yesterday morning to take part in the 25th annual Easter Egg Run, organised by Nottingham Triumph Owners Club.
They began at the Red Lion Bottesford, and rode through Grantham town centre before turning to the Meres Leisure Centre to deliver Easter eggs for deserving children.
They then went on to Melton Mowbray with the remainder.
PARKERS who overstay in Grantham’s legitimate street parking places will soon have 10 minutes grace.
It follows a recent ruling by Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Eric Pickles.
It comes into force in Grantham on Monday 6th April.
A County Highways spokesman said: “Anyone who parks in, say, a one-hour space will not receive a ticket until they’ve been there 70 minutes. We have already relaxed the rules to five minutes grace.”
But he stressed it only applies to legal parking. Anyone caught in disabled or parking bays will be issue with a ticket immediately.

A LANE of the A1 southbound carriageway was closed for a couple of hours this morning, due to a road accident.
Firefighters from Grantham and Corby Glen released the driver of a car at Easton, south of Grantham, by cutting away the roof. He was then taken to hospital.
No other vehicle was involved. The road was reopened just after 10am.
FOR a small rural police force, but Lincolnshire Police is exceptional for the high proportion of its officers who carry taser.
Around 27 per cent of frontline officers in the force area are routinely armed with the less lethal weapon – more than in any other part of the country, according to PoliceOracle.com.
Nationally, the proportion of officers armed with taser is around 10 per cent. In contrast, in Lincolnshire towns as many as half of all officers out on patrol at any one time could be carrying a taser.
Lincolnshire Police comes closest out of all the 43 forces in England and Wales to achieving the Police Federation’s aim of allowing every frontline officer the option of carrying a taser.
Jon Hassall from the local branch of the Police Federation said colleagues in neighbouring forces are a bit “jealous” of the situation Lincolnshire is in.
“The rural nature of the force means officers have to travel over vast areas, and it could take a long time to get support from colleagues,” he said. “They feel reassured when carrying the less lethal weapon.”
These statistics are in reality more the result of a quirk of history as opposed to arising from any specific factors unique to this area of eastern England.
The county was one of the trial forces when taser was first introduced in Britain seven years ago but because of political disquiet about the weapons in London at the time, many of the tasers the Home Office had already bought went to Lincolnshire rather than the Met, for whom they had apparently been originally intended.
Inspector Mark Garthwaite said: “The high proportion is something we are very conscious of, and it’s a difficult one because some of our peers would suggest we’ve gone too far, but I don’t see it like that.
“I just think it’s very forward thinking on the part of our chief constable.”
He said the latest statistics show in the last three months of 2014 the proportion of “non-discharge” incidents in Lincolnshire – those incidents in which taser was removed from its holster but not fired – was actually lower than the national average.

Rosanna Garner says…
There has been a dachshund seen running around in the Chelmsford Drive/Greenhill Road area.
My daughter went out to try and catch it but it keeps running off.
She has been very worried about it as it has been running into Barrowby Road main road.
It is dark brown/black in colour and wearing a blue coat, no owner seen looking for it.
A GRANTHAM mum is appealing for the return of a special piece of jewellery following a burglary at The Drive, Dysart Road.
Annette Pask says her daughter’s house was broken into while they were on holiday.
Among items stolen was a pandora bracelet. It had an irreplaceable charm silver charm on it of her son’s foot at three-months old along with his name Alfie. It is a Silver round flat shaped charm.
She said: “If nothing else we would ask for this to be returned. Thank you.
“It is of no real value to anyone else but priceless to my daughter.”
It can be returned anonymously by contacting GranthamMatters@gmail.com OR TXT 07968 143197.
FIREFIGHTERS used a water backpack to extinguish a bonfire within a wooded area behind Denton Avenue, Grantham, at midnight last night.
It was caused by a group of people described by residents as “drinking, letting off fireworks, shouting and screaming, playing music and lighting fires”.
Police were called at 11.15pm to report the disturbance.
One neighbour said: “Through experience I know that the anti-social behaviour just spirals out of control if it is not stopped.
“If you take a walk into the woods it is disgusting the mess they are making, rubbish, broken bottles and cans litter the area, they are also damaging the trees.”
The problem usually begins in summer but there have been raves for the past four weeks this year.
Police have been involved over the last few years and they have been very helpful and try their best to stop this behaviour. SKDC anti-social behaviour team has also been involved.
The woodland is private property.
The owner encourages dog-walkers, children playing and repectful campers on his land but not this drunken disturbance.
Traffic police stopped a vehicle on the A1, near Grantham, last night, travelling at 130mph.
On inspection, it was found the driver, from Bradford, had a provisional licence.
