GUARDIAN ANGEL: The latest from our girl about town...
Angel was greeted by a beautiful sight when she looked out of her office window on Tuesday morning. She could see nothing but perfect, glistening snow... until about 11am when it all melted to reveal the grot scattered across the car park behind the old Post Office in Spalding.
• On a more positive note, Angel was delighted to see the first daffodils growing along the riverbank along West Marsh Road in Spalding.
Which leads this heavenly soul to make a plea for people to wait until collection day (or last thing the previous night if it’s an early collection) before putting out their green recycling bags. Along with the daffodils, Angel spotted three bags full of material presumably destined for recycling floating downstream along the Welland.
• Angel had to chuckle when she spied an advert on the outside of a local recruitment agency this week.
It read: “Five tonne HGV drivers wanted.” She assumes the weight refers to the vehicles and not those required to drive them.
• The saying goes that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but Angel’s colleague Winston Brown discovered that it can also come down the end of a phone.
Art and design student Ingrid Carolini earned his favour this week during a meeting ahead of the former Gleed Girls Technology College’s big night in Cambridge next Sunday. Ingrid is one of 33 girls in contention for this year’s Miss Cambridgeshire title and she seems to have won our vote already.
• Angel may have a nice surprise for Robert, who went to our Christmas Day lunch. A pair of leather gloves left in a car are now at our offices in The Crescent. We’ll keep them safe!
