I have to go to Dunkirk because this is Lenton's only remaining post office, which has to survive with both hands tied behind its back. It cannot issue car taxation disks and many Post Office services have been privatised. I decided to walk back along Abbey Street to take a look at what was happening around the old Nazareth House site.
On the way, I passed the small Spar convenience shop at the Dunkirk Flyover end of Beeston Road. In recent years, a good few small 'corner' shops like this have disappeared, replaced by supermarket 'locals'. In Lenton, we now have three.
