The latest from our girl about town
Come on motorists! Give cyclists a break – or at the very least don’t attempt to overtake when there clearly isn’t room to do so, putting the cyclist’s life at risk, as witnessed by Angel on Wednesday morning on High Bridge in Spalding.
* Having just returned from a trip out to Moulton Chapel on the B1165 Angel was interested to note a stretch of road that was covered in mud as a result of tractor activity and, a short distance away, a car in a ditch. Wonder if the two were connected in any way?
* Angel is certainly a big Christmas fan, happily sporting Christmas jumpers while listening to Christmas hits in November and itching to put the decorations up. However, one thing Angel can’t quite get her halo-topped head around is car antlers. Yes, that’s right. Antlers which you stick on your car. I’m sure they’re more likely to cause damage to your car than conjure up the festive spirit we all love. Is there any point to them? Angel thinks not.
* Angel was having a gentle tootle in her car along High Street, Gosberton, but had to slow down from the 30mph limit on Tuesday evening because there was a slow-moving vehicle in front – none other than Santa Claus on his sleigh and his wonderful helpers from Spalding Lions. Now that’s a first for Angel and, yes, she’s still a big Christmas fan.
* This may be a coincidence, but ever since the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian started publishing petrol prices, it seems they have been falling. Angel knows petrol prices have dropped nationally but Spalding’s prices are often lower than those in Boston – something unheard of a little while ago.
