Somewhere like Lincoln doesn’t have that much going for it – especially architecturally. That’s why we can’t overlook the impact that this will have on the outlying areas on Canterbury, where the media aren’t always looking. I used to go down to the Famous Grouse from time to time, when I worked at AgResearch. It’s a real shame that they can’t save something like this, especially after so much work had been done to it in recent times.
