How lovely it was to see Spalding’s narrowboat decorated in flowers and moored up in the town centre for Spalding in Bloom judging day. Angel took the opportunity to go aboard and can confirm it’s well fitted out and would be perfect for a trip along the Welland.
• Angel also enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Red Lion Street when shopping in Spalding on Saturday. Apart from the vintage market, Boston College had a Summer Bake event going on with youngsters getting their hands into an enormous tray of flour in the name of art.
• Angel spotted two ladies conducting a conversation in sign language outside Boots in Spalding the other day. The pair looked so happy and seemed to be having a fascinating talk about something which left them giggling as they walked around town – what a lovely sight to see!
• Angel was horrified to see a rusty old bike chained to a fence in High Street with a wheel missing – until she was told it was art and part of a display by the Transported arts programme. Looking around she spotted more – including one in the market place. On closer inspection she found it was not rust at all but paint – and each had a name and a little design on it. But the one that really caught her eye was at the top of the Crescent on Friday – there for the visit of the East Midlands In Bloom judges and with flowers in its basket. Somehow the latter worked, in the same way that flowers in wheelbarrows or watering cans do. But do you think it is art? Angel would love to know...
