"Your Village needs You!"

 Each summer the staff at the Waltham Fire Station hang planters outside their building and I usually photograph the display.  This year the doors have been painted with this impressive mural, hoping to attract and recruit new members to the fire & rescue service.

Sign of these times?

Many businesses have closed during this pandemic and Cleethorpes lost one of it's oldest shops in early June with the closure of "John Turner's" Butcher, Baker & Sandwich Maker.

I'm a vegetarian but was still saddened to see this old family firm close.

John Turner's shop in St. Peters Avenue, Cleethorpes.  

The familiar "larger than life" figure of a butcher stood outside Turners for many years,
but now stands behind the permenently closed door.
