Adhere to rules of the road
Every day I take my life in my hands walking my dogs down the footpath of Farndon Road, Newark.

Although the Highway Code (not the law) states in rule 170 that pedestrians already crossing a side road have right of way, it seems most drivers these days choose to ignore that.

Life becomes doubly difficult for the pedestrian when drivers also refuse to signal their intent to turn, or fail to cancel a previous turn signal.

Recently I almost got run over while crossing a garage forecourt.

Open to debate
THE candidates vying to represent the Newark constituency in the next Parliament will go up against each other at the Advertiser’s election hustings next week. With only five weeks to go to the May 7 polling date this is an opportunity to quiz them about things that really matter to you, and see how they respond.

The campaign to secure votes is hotting up and the future of the NHS, education, the economy, law and order, immigration and other big national issues all have major implications closer to home.

The hustings is at the Magnus Church of England Academy, Newark, from 7pm on Tuesday. Admission is free and open to all.

It will feature all six candidates: Mr Robert Jenrick (Conservative); Mr Michael Payne (Labour); Mr David Dobbie (Liberal Democrat); Mr Brian Mapletoft (UKIP); Elayne Forster (Green Party); and Dr Helen Tyrer (Consensus — The Community Party).
