Grantham Journal letter: Let’s revive old building

Have your say

If Grantham wants to have a memorial to Margaret Thatcher, may I suggest that the shamefully unused building of the old Grantham Hospital be revived and turned into a community centre and cafe, for the use of visitors and residents.

It would be a fitting memorial and restore a beautiful building, which after all, is on a main road into Grantham and is seen by all. It does not give a good impression of either the hospital or the town at present.

She did, after all, hate waste in the NHS and cut out useless layers of administration from it.

It would be far more useful than a static lump of obscure “art” like the attempt in the Market Place.
