The latest from our girl about town

Angel had to laugh last week when a message went out on the Spalding Guardian’s Facebook page with a literal in it.

Our reporter was asking readers whether they would be prepared to commit a crime in order to put food in the mouths of their family.

Unfortunately, the message came out: “Would you steal to FEEL your family.”

* Angel is a big fan of the cheaper priced supermarkets and does much of her weekly shop in Aldi.

However, the “Supermarket of the Year” obviously needs to keep on its toes because Angel spotted a shop assistant complete with Aldi overall shopping in nearby Heron! Price check in order.

* Is it just Angel or is Sutton Bridge a jolly hard place to drive through?

It seems that every time she takes her chariot through that particular village she encounters someone absent-mindedly backing a vehicle out into the road, a cyclist careering towards her on the wrong side or a pedestrian wandering into her path.

Leaves her all nervous and shaky!

* Panic ensued at Guardian Towers on Monday morning when signs went up saying various roads around its Crescent base would be closed from 6am on Friday for the Pumpkin Parade.

The council soon rectified its mistakes and changed the signs to later in the day... apart from the one on High Bridge.

So would Angel be able to park as normal? On Wednesday morning a bit of black sticky tape had been added down one side of the “a” on 6am, meaning the closure was now officially 6pm and everyone was happy. Phew!

* Angel can’t help but feel sorry for Holbeach United Football Club manager Glen Maddison after a couple of posters have gone up in the town calling for him to be sacked.

The new boss was left with a decimated squad after all but three of last year’s championship-winning team left shortly before he arrived at Carter’s Park.

So to call for his head this early in the season really is naughty. Give the man a chance.

* Angel and him who likes to think he must be obeyed were having a lovely wander through Spalding town centre on a perfect autumn afternoon last Sunday. After enjoying a coffee in a quiet corner of Costa Coffee, they strolled through the Sheep Market and into the Crescent, where they were treated to the sight of a man urinating at the top of Abbey Passage. They then watched as his mate threw his empty drinks can into an archway that is becoming a bit of a dumping ground and then, only partly hidden by large packing boxes behind Hills Furniture Store, he too proceeded to relieve himself in public. Lovely...
