Cash for bandstand and signs?

SPALDING Town Forum has a £27,000 underspend and will look at the cost of providing a bandstand for the town’s Ayscoughfee Gardens and new “Welcome to Spalding” signs.

Coun Graham Dark made a plea for a bandstand, but Coun Roger Gambba-Jones warned there may not be enough money in the pot and estimated the likely cost at £40,000.

Coun Dark said he believed it would still be possible to provide something suitable.

• Cash may also go towards a replanting scheme on the riverbank near High Bridge, Spalding, to deter anti-social behaviour and rough sleeping. See page 9.
