GUARDIAN ANGEL: The latest news from our girl about town
Angel was in north Yorksire last week, enjoying a week of tranquility with members of her family.
On the first day her two neices were makeing such a noise that they had to be reminded they were in a terraced house and could probably be heard next door.
Later that day, one of them banged a ball against a wall, only to be reprimanded by her sister: “Shush... remember, this is a terrorist house!”
* While enjoying the beautiful scenery and quiet life in the Moors, Angel couldn’t help thinking of the contrast to some of our towns and the anti-social behaviour we sometimes suffer here.
If villages such as Grosmont and Goathland suffered street drinking, littering and public urination, Angel is sure something would be done to stamp it out very quickly.
* Angel picked up a copy of our cousin paper in Yorkshire, The Whitby Gazette, while on her hols, and saw a story about “menacing seagulls terrorising the local community”.
She scoffed to herself and thought it must be the silly vseason for news up north... until she saw them.
These gulls were the biggest she has ever seen and far bigger than the ones you see chasing the ploughing tractors in south Lincolnshire. Must be all those chips dropped on the pavement.
* Another great day out for Angel was when she took the children to visit the York Castle Museum.
However, she was a little dismayed and felt a little older when spotting a TV tennis game she loved in the 70s displayed, along with a Chopper bike, record player and Mastermind game... all things she once played with, now museum artefacts.
