IT is the first time I have had a look around Grantham for quite a few years and it made me feel very sad to see the state of the place, the number of empty shops, the number of fast food, booze, charity shops and the general run-down look of the place.
I could hardly believe it was the town I used to know. The Market Place, which was always lively, was almost deserted and this within a few days of Christmas! How many more shops have to close before Grantham closes?
I do hope those responsible for running the town get a grip and do something before it’s too late.
