With so many options for teens to choose from when it comes to picking an education provider after GCSEs, it makes it harder to decide which is best. As a parent or guardian, you want your teen to be happy as well as making sure they’ve made the right choice educationally. From the teen’s perspective, high on the priority list is where their friends are and having independence.

The news that United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust is considering the removal of the orthopaedic trauma unit at Grantham Hospital has sent shock waves through those concerned at the future role of Grantham Hospital. As someone who is walking today thanks to the fantastic team, once led by Mr Haliday, even the thought of travelling over Lincolnshire’s roads with a multiple fracture brings a shudder. Rightly, campaigners are calling for a vote of no confidence in the hospital trust board who, prompted by NHS Improvement, are hollowing out our health services across Lincolnshire. The latest news being Boston’s Children’s Unit is now at risk.

Benjamin Franklin famously said that “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest” and here in Grantham we are fortunate to have some of the best schools in the region. However, all is not entirely right in the local education landscape as religious dogma is letting down Grantham children. Lincolnshire County Council is committed to working with schools and academies to champion the needs of children and young people and we work hard to safeguard and promote their best interests. The rise in the number of Multi-Academy Trusts, who are now in receipt of a very significant level of funding from the public purse and who are responsible for the standard of education in their schools, makes fulfilling this role very complex.

Hello, Grace, here again with your monthly article. In this column we will be discussing a matter that a lot of you probably will have heard about recently, and that is… Brexit. Now you may be wondering what is Brexit? But by the time you have finished reading this text I hope things are clearer.

Traffic congestion on the A607 Manthorpe Road last week caused long delays, some days extending as far back as the village of Belton. Having attended the launch of the SKDC Gravity Fields Festival last Thursday, the traffic was at a standstill going into town, so being pushed for time I had to make the decision to travel via Belton village across Five Gates and through Harrowby to get into town only to be held up by traffic negotiating the potholes on New Beacon Road.

I have always been in favour of development. We need to build thousands of new houses so that it becomes more affordable for people in their twenties and thirties to buy a home of their own.

I’ve been talking a lot recently about getting a fairer government funding deal for Lincolnshire. At this time of year, as we make major decisions about how we will spend the limited funding we have and how we will raise the money we need to keep services going, the need for fairer funding becomes even more apparent.

Last week, MPs voted on plans for the restoration and renewal of Parliament. This vast complex – more a small town than a single building – is falling apart. Its electrics, central heating, sewage system and water supplies are ancient and constantly breaking down.

At a recent meeting of the SKDC Cabinet, during which the council’s proposed budget was considered,​ Labour councillors observed a number of our group proposals are being adopted as council policy but key questions remain over others. ​A​ common theme was the need for SKDC to improve its strategic thinking.
