What Does Labour’s Manifesto Say?

Nick Palmer writes: It’s here:

I’ll leave you to decide for yourself and compare with the Tory manifesto on Thursday, but do read it. It’s the kind of programme that made me join Labour, and a breath of fresh air in our stale political climate. If you vote for it, regardless of the overall outcom you’re voting for genuine renewal in Bitish politics.

And that’s not before time.

Best wishes

Inexpensive hot meal and care service

Jane Parke, from Market Development and Site Services Worksop  writes:

The service we offer is the delivery of meals, hot or frozen to the door, plus a safe and well check.  It is up to the customer to decide which service is best for them.

The frozen service gives the customer the choice of choosing from the whole brochure the meals and desserts they require. The order can be any amount but a minimum of five. This can also be as frequently as you require.  A set day will be agreed and the meals will be delivered and placed in the freezer, these can be reheated in a conventional oven, microwave or steamer when required.

Have you lost a mobility scooter?

Barry Morrison reported yesterday:

On 10 May a mobility scooter was left, apparently abandoned, next to the bus stop outside Bramcote Newsagents/Post Office, next to the Sherwin Arms. Does anyone know of someone who could have accidentally lost a mobility scooter(Yep, I know it sounds strange). Someone phoned the police and the answer was ”It’s not a police matter”.

I haven’t been out, in the rain, to check but presume it is still there. If anyone passes, please take a photo and email to us to publish.”
