Grantham Margaret Thatcher - Lady not for turning

Grantham Home Town of Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher – First female Prime Minister in the UK

Political leader

She was the first woman to be a Prime Minister in the UK despite being a grocer’s daughter from Grantham and led the country from 1979 to 1990.  Margaret Thatcher was regularly in the headlines particularly for her strength as a political leader.


Another occasion was when the film The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep was released in the UK in December last year.  This brought back memories of Baroness Thatcher and her home town Grantham. While some held respect for what she did memories of strikes still remained with many.

However, the town’s ex Mayor wanted to grab the moment, raise her profile and do Thatcher tourism. YNUKtv went to see if the locals were ready ‘for turning’.
