Surgery praise
Maybe I’m just fortunate to be a patient of Barnbygate Surgery, but over the 14 years I have lived in Newark I have never, ever, had a problem getting an appointment with the emergency GP on the day of the emergency.

I would be astounded if the same situation does not exist in all the local surgeries.

So, if you believe you need an emergency appointment tell the receptionist at your surgery and he or she will get you one that day.

If possible go down to the surgery but if you can’t, just hang on — you will get through eventually.

Time to end saga
WE ARE less than two weeks into 2017, but fears have already been expressed that it could be as long as two years before the sorry saga of Newark’s Robin Hood Hotel reaches a conclusion.

What must people think when they see the dilapidated remains on the corner of Beaumond Cross?

From the people who live here to visitors to the town, all must wonder why nothing has been achieved in the way of meaningful progress.

The only noticeable change since the completion of the Potterdyke redevelopment is that the three Georgian townhouses, which formed the front of the hotel and are listed for protection, are decaying further.
