Mayor of Sleaford Coun David Suiter commented strongly on the video.

He said: “They have not included Sleaford? I think it is quite disgraceful from the county council. I am very disappointed that Sleaford is not covered. As a growing town, it has very good schools for a start and I do feel that it should be represented by the county council.

“Sleaford has quite a lot to offer. It has the shop window scheme (an initiative to revitalise the town’s shop fronts), and a lot of people relocate to Sleaford. There is the National Centre for Craft and Design and our museum and Sleaford in Bloom does a lot of work for the town and usually wins a prize. We have the volunteers working on the river (as part of the clean up). I think there are a lot of things the county council could do to improve Sleaford and promote it as a way of providing jobs. We need more recruits in the doctor surgeries for example. There are a lot of good things going on in Sleaford.”
