The latest news from our girl about town...

Angel spotted a toddler contentedly sitting outside McDonald’s in Spalding on Sunday.

An accompanying adult pointed out to the little lad that there was a green man walking up to the restaurant’s doors.

Indeed there was.

The lad studied things momentarily and replied: “It looks like he painted himself.”

Indeed it did.

No-one troubled to find out why within Angel’s earshot.

* Schoolchildren lit up a wet and cold Spalding town centre with their lovely singing during a choir competition on Saturday... and there was also some laughter at the event.

When compere Jan Whitbourn announced the next school to take to the stage, she said: “And now it’s St John the Baptist.” To which someone replied: “I thought he was dead.”

* Spalding Guardian editor Jeremy Ransome was a judge at the event and raised one or two pairs of eyebrows when he tweeted that the choirs were “singing well in the drizzle”.

HE was undercover and the rain was LASHING down on everyone else.

* There was also much laughter at the Guardian’s Education Awards last Thursday.

In his closing speech, local MP and Government security minister John Hayes told the crowd, tongue firmly in cheek, that he was the nearest thing they would ever get to James Bond.

Shortly afterwards his wallet and keys were returned to him after he left them under a chair. So much for security then.

* Angel loves good shop staff and likes to praise them when they do a good job. So three cheers for three different members of staff in Skechers at Springfields who were so helpful on Saturday.
