Louth market stall erector calls it a day after 37 years

Bob Parrinder called it a day after nearly four decades of putting up and taking down stalls in Louth and Mablethorpe for East Lindsey District Council.

Remarkably, he had only agreed to step in when another worker was ill all those years ago, but somehow he never quite made it out again.
