“Well Santa’s helpers have once again packed away all the illuminations on the Christmas Tree and taken away the tree for another year.
However when getting everything back into place we found that the manhole cover was missing. This was an extremely heavy concrete block that was only moved once a year to accommodate the tree and then left at the back of the Market Place near the auction shed. The actual block itself had been used for some 45 years.
Thanks are due from the Market Rasen Children’s Father Christmas Fund for the services of Nigel Richardson and Miles Hardy of Messrs Hardy Bros. Builders of Tealby who were quickly to the rescue and within a few short hours had made a replacement cover, and that now sits neatly into place on the square. “
