50 Years Ago

lFiremen from Grantham were scrambled to two reports of planes crashing - one in Fulbeck and one at Beckingham. However both were found to be “false alarms with good intent”.

lThe number of young people in Grantham looking for work decreased but the number of unemployed women went up as mothers re-registered to work after seeing their children return to school.

lThe Battle of Britain was commemorated with a special sermon by the Vicar of Grantham Canon G. R. Sansbury at St Wulfram’s Church.
