If you are like me and you like a fire at Christmas and during the long winter months then you need to think about stocking up on firewood and logs.
You would be best placed to keep warm - and I know our Indian Summer is making us blase, but winter will arrive - by contacting Gareth or Christine of the Grantham Log Company.
Which leads me on to a gently reminder of Great Ponton's Bonfire Night. The bonfire is lit at 6.30pm on Nov 7 and fireworks start at 7pm - and they are always good at this village and a couple of minutes from Grantham going south on the A1.
Hot food and family disco is included in the ticket price. Adult £4.00 and children (4-15yrs) £1.
