Angel’s editor wasn’t really one for science at school so he was most impressed by a teacher at last Thursday’s Guardian and Free Press Education Awards.
The teacher from Spalding Grammar School had been shortlisted as a runner-up in the Most Inspirational Teacher category.... for making physics fun.
However, Angel was less than impressed to hear that students at the school were NOT allowed to wear fancy dress for their Children in Need non-uniform day this Friday as other secondary schools in the area are.
Want some fun anyone?
• A consultation about GPs stopping prescribing over-the-counter medicines that can be bought from pharmacies or supermarkets ends tomorrow, with the new rules likely to come into effect on December 1... and Angel isn’t happy about it. When discussing a recent ailment with a pharmacist, she soon realised there was quite an audience listening to the advice and medicines being prescribed.
Angel imagined how embarrassing it could have been if the complaint was a more personal one.
A sign of things to come, I suppose.
• Santa’s sleigh was in Spalding town centre on Tuesday (courtesy of local Rotarians) but Angel was far more interested in the adorable miniature pony that was also in town.
• Angel’s friend happened to be in Stamford town centre at 11am on the 11th and said absolutely everyone in the main shopping street stood stock still in silence, creating a wonderful tableau of remembrance.
• Was it the model railway show or simply Christmas shopping that was attracting all those crowds to Springfields on Sunday?
Angel and ’im indoors gave up on their shopping plans when they saw the big car park was full.
