It's that crazy time of year again, when Lincolnshire blesses the grit.
"The gritting lorries are very visible on the county's roads, but their work is often taken for granted," said Dr Saxbee, who wrote the prayer for the ceremonies.I wonder what he means exactly by "taken for granted"? Do I assume that it will be done? Yes, of course, I do, I pay the taxes required to make it happen and, big surprise, I expect the council to keep up their end of the bargain.
It is the fourth time the blessings have been held.And, yet, road deaths in Lincolnshire this year are up on last year. Does he really think anyone is listening to him?
