Please be more careful

Angel is convinced that someone is going to run over an unfortunate Spalding Grammar School boy soon – because the little blighters don’t seem to be able to keep on the pavement in the mornings. They do have this awful habit of stepping out in front of cars. Please, stop!

Talking of driving hindrances, it’s very good of the council to put up their signs warning of road closures tomorrow for the annual Spalding Pumpking Parade, but the signs have been put so far out in the road, that one can nearly cause an accident when negotiating past them in a car.

No wonder the one at the top of The Crescent has been knocked over several times.

Sitting here in Guardian Towers recently, Angel has heard something that she hadn’t for a long time – a train “horn”. Are there new vehicles being used for the upgrade works that are going through Spalding maybe?

Angel’s editor was full of praise for the programme editor at Spalding United FC and for local firm Welland Print when he came back from the West Marsh Road business last Thursday.

With the Tulips playing in the FA Cup on the Saturday they could have been playing a home replay on the following Tuesday, or a league game – so they were working on two programme covers. In the event, they lost the FA Cup match and the team they should have played in the league on Tuesday drew their game, meaning no game at all for Spalding and two programme covers ditched.
