SO, Mayor Mike Taylor thinks we have no need to shop in Newark as we can get all we want in Grantham. I think not.
Has he forgotten we have no Marks and Spencer, no Claire’s Accessories or a Mothercare, to name three?
Newark has a better market and you can walk around quite comfortably, not a mismatch like Grantham - what is there to walk down Westgate for - an eyesore at the other end? Not one seat has been placed anywhere for the elderly to rest.
Newark is a much nicer place to shop. I hate to say it, as I have lived here all my life, but it has gone to pot.
