With the sun shining brightly I recently set off from my home and walked across Sconce and Devon Park to Devon bridge.

The first public footpath on Farndon Road leads to the Trent, passing in front of Trent Villas and on to Farndon Mill.

Here, and beyond, the flood plain meadows are enriched by a colourful display of wild flowers.

Money matters
THE Conservative Party’s determination to hang on to the Newark seat at last month’s by-election was reflected not only in Prime Minister David Cameron’s four visits to the constituency, but also by its spending on the campaign.

Figures out this week show the party was within £4,000 of the £100,000 spending limit.

UKIP spent £85,000 and achieved a strong second place.

Labour committed just over £25,000 and the party finished a distant third at the polls.
