Two words, ‘community spirit’, have been made to work overtime throughout 2015.

Worldwide tragedies including the migration of whole populations northwards which involves thousands of helpless children, the terrorist atrocities as in Paris, the random shootings in America and nearer to home those terrible life-changing floods in Cumbria and elsewhere have all brought forward a true pulling together of communities in support of all those affected.

Comforting thought isn’t it, to know that if trouble strikes, there will always be a community spirit to support you throughout any ordeal?

In Grantham we have not had to face anything like these dramatic events but I feel sure that should we be faced with such things, we, as a community full of spirit and compassion, would never fail to help those in need.

May I wish you all a very happy, trouble-free 2016.
