Have your say

IF you had a genie and three wishes then I’m sure one would be for Aladdin to open your newly refurbished town post office.

And that’s just what happened in Grantham in 1995.

Grantham’s Douglas Gorin, starring in panto as Aladdin, cut the ribbon along with his colleague Danielle Akers in October while staff at the post office looked on.

Douglas said: “The interesting thing is that quite a lot of the people in the photo are still working in the post office.

“It was quite an occasion.”
