GUARDIAN ANGEL: The latest news from our girl about town...

An IT professional couldn’t make it to Guardian towers to help a damsel in distress because his car broke down.

One of Angel’s reporter friends couldn’t sympathise and simply quipped: “Did the car mechanic ask him to switch it on and off again?”

• Angel is eagerly awaiting the re-opening of Greggs following the refit of the Spalding Hall Place bakers and cafe.

Workmen were outside the other day – having lunch in their own makeshift pavement cafe.

They could have nipped a few doors along the street and given Costa a try, but Angel guesses the homemade sarnies and flasks of tea were just the job and just a tad cheaper.

• A lovely lady wanted to email something to our newsroom but couldn’t because her Internet at home was down. 
The handy solution we found was to suggest she popped into Spalding’s branch of Beales with her smart phone and use their free Wifi. It worked a treat!

• Angel’s chariot has twice had near misses at Gosberton’s High Street junction with Boston Road and Spalding Road. As you emerge from High Street, there’s a double-lane with give-way signs clearly marked – the left lane is the exit for Boston and the right for Spalding.

But drivers approaching from Boston are turning into Gosberton via the right hand (Spalding exit) lane instead of going further round the corner to use the designated road for “incoming” traffic.
