GUARDIAN ANGEL: The latest news from our girl about town

Angel had the pleasure of seeing a very good ‘senior’ rock band playing 50s and 60s classics at The Granary on Saturday night.

And she had to laugh when the 60-something lead singer quipped: “The Rolling Stones are touring South America at the moment. I wish they’d retire and give up and coming groups such as ourselves a chance.”

• While out walking lately, Angel has observed the very lazy trend of people driving their cars to green areas, letting their dogs out and then driving alongside them, or sitting in the car while the dog exercises.

This has been observed three times lately and in all instances the drivers didn’t seem to be old or infirm.

• While looking at the lovely photographs in this week’s Spalding Guardian of children dressed up as book characters, Angel had to laugh when thinking back on a story she was told last year.

One poor boy, who attends a local primary school, got his dates mixed up and spent the whole morning at school dressed in full Tudor regalia, alongside his classmates in ordinary uniform.

• How lovely to see that, years after the World Wars, our schoolchildren are still being helped to remember those we lost.

You will see on page 8 and 9 of today’s Spalding Guardian Chrissie Redford’s excellent feature about her day in Auschwitz with local secondary school children.

And on Saturday, Angel’s nephew is off to France on a battlefields trip. Hopefully, we never will forget.

• Angel has been catching up on Call the Midwife lately so it was perhaps no surprise that images of childbirth sprang to mind when she heard ‘Push!’ coming from an open window – at the sports centre in Spalding!
