JOHNSON FOUNTAIN

Where’s it going to go?

The general consensus seems to be strongly in favour of somewhere in the town centre. After all, that’s where it was designed for – originally in the Market Place, then revised to Hall Place. As well as providing pure drinking water at a time when it was a luxury for many people in the town, it strengthened the distinctive character of Hall Place by giving it a striking central focus. That is, until it was removed to Ayscoughfee Gardens in 1954 to make way for a traffic scheme. See the latest newsletter to read more...

2020 Calendar

Are there unseen gems lurking in your computer or smart-phone? Or maybe you’d like to take your camera out to one of the villages you’ve not been to for a while? Why not?

After our well-received calendar for 2018, we’re planning another for 2020, showing Spalding and nearby villages or countryside at their best or most interesting, and would like to include photographs taken by members or their friends or family. Crowland, Moulton, Surfleet, Pinchbeck, not just Spalding. And not just churches! Other historic buildings, sweeping views with dramatic skies, interesting details. Pictures with a clear seasonal feel would be particularly welcome: snow, daffodils, harvest. But they should not have been previously published. (The above are just examples.)

Landscape format, please, with an indication of where taken and contact details. They can be submitted as prints or electronically via email or on a disk or memory stick.

Send to: John Bland, 36 Park Avenue,

Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE11 1QX Email: johnrgbland@gmail.com Closing date: 31 July.

With your help we should be able to produce a really attractive calendar for 2020.
