Coun Ray Wootten says…
The silent majority turned out in their hundreds today to greet the Belvoir Hunt meet which have been meeting in Grantham for 130 years.
The turnout was one of the biggest seen in Grantham despite meeting at a new location in Stonebridge Road.
Although there were a few protesters, their voice was drowned out by those who were supporting the meet.
Many who turned out were critical that the Mayor was not there to greet the Hunt Master and present the traditional stirrup cup.

Some scumbags have gone through the train station tunnel and smashed all the lights in there.
Great for when children and parents are having to walk through there when it’s dark after school!
Thje tunnel was recently refurbished by Network Rail at the cost of several £1,000s.

HOSPITAL CAR PARKING
Sue McQuinn says…
1) Today I’ve received confirmation from Paul Boocock, Director of Facilities & Estates ULHT, that they are happy to help anyone who has received a PCN, which they believe to have been issued in error.
They will need your penalty reference no. and brief details of the circumstances.
Email: Paul.Boocock@ULH.nhs.uk or Ian.Hayden@ULH.nhs.uk
This includes (but isn’t exclusive to):
* PCNs received after paying in conjunction with a Blue Badge
* PCNs received after using Out of Hours (parking near Kingfisher Unit) and entering reg. into tablet as required
*PCNs received after using good2go app.
*PCNs received after using “the drop off bay” for under 20 mins.
2) If your parking fee went over one hour because of queues, Paul has offered free parking on your next visit. To obtain this he advises:
“If they could present their appointment card to reception from their previous visit then this will be arranged for them.”
TBH I’m not sure how helpful this is a) who always keeps their appointment card b) what if you were just visiting someone?
I hope all this helps some of you

Sadly the toy bank in Butchers Row has come to an end for another year but the results have been immense.
A record number of 229 children have been helped this year thanks to the generous donations we received.
The lads at the Kings School would like to thank anybody who got involved in this year’s programme and we would like to thank you for your continued support.
This driver is that Disabled he forgot to take his walking sticks and this Traffic warden didn’t notice that he was parked on double yellows and walked straight by .
Real life lol
