Eye Spy - 7th March

IT really was party time at Mansfield Town FC on Saturday with fans in the Quarry Lane Stand doing a conga just before the end of a momentous match to celebrate a 2-1 win over local rivals Lincoln and chairman John Radford buying the stadium from Keith Haslam. I’ve never seen a conga at a football ground before!

BACK to the subject of disabled parking bays at shops, well done to the man on Sunday at Forest Town Asda, a very fit and able-bodied guy probably in his 30s, for taking one of the slots closest to the doors just so he could dodge the rain. At the same time, shoppers in three cars and 4x4s decided to park on the yellow lines to pack up their shopping and also use the ATMs, rather than use a coat or umbrella! Do supermarkets actually police the disabled bays and yellow lines?
