Mrs V. Odell, of Croft Drive, Grantham, has written a poem to share with Journal readers.

She said: “Now that St Wulfram’s Spire is almost finished and we have been given our wonderful spire back, I thought a thank you poem was called for.”

Built to last:

It’s tall and straight and splendid,

And reaches to the sky.

A spire of greatest beauty,

That gladdens every eye.

Built so many years ago,

By men with Faith and Love.

No health and safety rules for them,

Just guidance from above.

Now the damage wrought by time,

Has carefully been restored.

By men with more great Faith and Love,

In homage to our lord.

Atop this mighty Heavenly sign,

A golden tribute lights our spire.

Look up, admire the work that’s done,

Be you Serf or Lord or Squire.

From North and South, and East and West,

St Wulfram’s praises sing.

And thank the lord for this great spire,

Oh let these church bells ring.
