I POPPED into my local bank on Thursday and overheard one customer earnestly asking the cashier: ‘Are you open on Bank Holiday Monday’? When the cashier replied that it was a ‘bank holiday’, the customer then asked if the bank’s branch in Nottingham would be open.

Just a few rays of sunshine were needed to get some men in Mansfield stripping off and showing their bare, tattooed torsos. Okay, so the lovely warm weather was very welcome, but there is less flesh on show at a Chippendale show than there was walking down Newgate Lane of a lunchtime. Put it away lads - it’s not the time or the place!

The torrential rain last Wednesday highlighted the poor quality of a number of roofs in the Mansfield area. Not only did the Town Hall ceiling come down, but buckets were required in the Four Seasons Shopping Centre to collect the raindrops coming through. In this compensation culture, those leaks want fixing quickly, before someone slips in a puddle!

Sometimes the thought process of some people totally beggars belief. At the main crossroads on Chesterfield Road in Mansfield one morning rushhour last week some bloke in a car with a small child in the front seat decided he couldn’t wait for the lights. He promptly swerved straight across the road, across the petrol forecourt, to join the traffic at the parallel set of lights. He clearly knew they’d turn green before the original set. Crackers!
