The pouring rain last Saturday made no difference. Thousands of us marched through the streets of Grantham anyway, defiantly protesting against United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust’s outrageous decision to close Grantham Hospital’s Accident and Emergency ward. It was a wonderful sight.

With regards to the closure trial currently underway at Grantham Hospital A&E department, I have two points on the way this trial is being portrayed.

It is beyond comprehension that the A&E service at Grantham Hospital should be scaled down or even scrapped altogether.

It isn’t just the people of Grantham affected by the temporary closure of overnight A&E services at Grantham Hospital, the nearby town of Sleaford and all villages surrounding the towns are affected by it as well.

I have been commenting about degradation of Grantham Hospital over the years and I’m not surprised at the decision to close down the A&E at night.

As a regular visitor to Grantham, due to my elderly parents being residents of the town, I feel as though I need to add my voice to others regarding the night time closure of the hospital A&E department.

We are going to need a bigger boat, not to mention a few more ambulances with a probable four-hour turn around delivering the heart attack, stroke and road traffic accident victims to the Lincoln or Boston A&E, but who is going to be left to look after the odd crazy paving accident casualty?

Karen Cannard’s recycling article (July 29) was interesting, but older readers will remember that during the Second World War many scarce products were rationed so nothing was ever thrown away, and plastic carrier bags did not exist.

What a beautiful display the flower beds are in Wyndham Park. They are a credit to the gardeners who look after them.

That famous Grantham grump John Andrews keeps banging on about Jeremy Corbyn, who still thinks we are living in the 1960s or 1970s when various nation states were experiencing despotic socialist government.

It was personally extremely fortuitous, I suppose, that following my severe digestive upheaval, that my daughter Judy was present as she was able to react immediately and contact the carers, and following directions from Vine Street Surgery the paramedic team were also alerted.

Australia, New Zealand , South Korea, China, India, Iceland, and many more countries have been beating a path to our door since the referendum, looking to do trade deals with this wonderful country of ours, and by the way, we are no longer at the back of the queue with the USA.

After Mr Boles was “shoehorned into this safe seat”, despite having no connection with this area, he has always, in my opinion put Nick Boles first.
