The latest from our girl about town
Angel appreciates that our roads need to be maintained and in fact wishes more holes in roads were being filled, but imagine her dismay on Sunday when she drove along Albion Street, Spalding, and virtually got all the way to twin bridges to find the road closed, with no warning.
* On a sunnier note, Angel loved walking through Spalding parish churchyard the other day – it’s filled with beautiful spring flowers of all colours.
*Has anyone else noticed that there are suddenly grebe on the Coronation Channel again? Angel is sure she hasn’t seen them for some months but there they were again at the weekend. Anyone know where they go for the winter?
*The yellow box junction outside the Pinchbeck Road entrance to the Castle Sports Complex – mentioned here many months ago – has all but disappeared with the markings scrubbed off by so many passing vehicles. Is there a shortage of paint/money at county council HQ or a lack of care? Surely if the “box” was needed before, it’s needed now.
*On the subject of yellow boxes, Angel couldn’t help but notice how tricky it is to negotiate the junction at Winsover Road level crossing. Drivers heading out of town and indicating late to turn right into Park Road cause all sorts of problems for motorists behind who have ventured into the box and suddenly find their exit is blocked due to a “parked right turner”. It’s just as tricky coming the other way because only a few cars can queue at the lights at the St Thomas’s Road junction.
*Angel accidentally left her cappuccino on the counter at Savers one lunchtime this week, but thoughtful staff kept it safe until her return five minutes later. Thank you.
