Observations from our girl about town...

She is no killjoy but for the life of her she couldn’t think of any other scenario – bar cutting back overhanging branches – where neighbours dumping rubbish on your property is acceptable.

That Guy Fawkes has got a lot to answer for.

nStaff in the Co-op at Whaplode were spreading a little early festive cheer thanks to a toy reindeer holding a blackboard counting down the days to Christmas.

When Angel enquired as to where Rudolph had gone, she was very sad to hear that so many Scrooges complained that he had to be taken down!

Where’s your Christmas spirit?

nOn a visit to Nottingham at the weekend Angel spotted a rival for the gorilla advertising Domino’s Pizza in King’s Lynn.

At West Bridgford there was a person wearing a rabbit suit, merrily dancing away and waving to all the passing traffic.

Sadly he or she was enjoying the dancing so much it was impossible to read where lucky shoppers should go to enjoy 20 per cent off!

nAngel has been out and about with her camera again.

This time she spotted forlorn pigeons desperately trying to get into the roof they call home (pictured above). Sadly someone had replaced the previously missing tile!

nAngel would like to invite a road safety officer or highways councillor to take a trip up West Parade in Spalding and emerge on to Winsover Road.

Vehicles parked close to the junction (legally, she might add) makes visibility looking towards Bourne Road very difficult and potentially dangerous. A compelling case for double yellow lines to be added for 50 yards or so.

nAngel was embarrassed on Saturday after she found herself short of money when going to pay at the Long Sutton hand car wash... but delighted by the generosity of the staff there, who happily let her off the 70p deficit.

nAnd while we’re on the subject of generosity, what about the Jolly Crispin pub in Lutton, selling pies and peas for just £1 a shout at their Sunday evening bonfire celebrations?
