Praise Indeed

It isn't often that the Parish Council is appreciated for its efforts.

We thought we should share with you the following received just the other day.

On Tuesday, 13th December I was returning from visiting my daughter in the West Midlands and had a very tiresome journey. It should take about two hours but, on this occasion, it took four due to an accident, heavy traffic and road closures. I had the traffic news on the radio but every decision I made to try to avoid the congestion seemed to be the wrong one. After travelling through Loughborough I was heading for Melton Mowbray but then the road was closed and I followed a diversion which brought me to Barrow upon Soar. More »

I had never been to Barrow upon Soar previously, I did not plan to visit there on this occasion, I was there purely by accident and I was, to use a cliché, 'losing the will to live' by the time I arrived there. I pulled off the road to ring my husband and inform him of my whereabouts and was delighted to tell him that, although I would not be home for a while yet, I had had the most lovely experience which made up for all the delays which had gone before.

All I can say to you, or whoever is involved with the Christmas lights in your village, is what a joy it was to drive through your main street. It was absolutely spectacular, lights everywhere, Christmas trees, beautifully decorated shop windows. It was beautiful, fantastic, splendid, an absolute picture, I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe it. Will you please accept, or pass on, my congratulations to the people concerned and say that it made at least one person very happy to see such a wonderful display. Thank you. Sadly, our lights in Grantham are not in any way comparable to yours. » Less
