RYHALL NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH:
Two thirds of the population fear being burgled so prevention is particularly important.
Whenever you go out, however short the trip, think – WIDEN
W Windows – keep them locked
I Interior – turn inside lights on or use a timer or smart bulb
D Doors – double or deadlock them all
E Exterior – turn outside lights on or use a sensor bulb
N Neighbours – care for your neighbours’ safety too
Make it difficult for the burglars or make them hesitate in their plans
Keep safe by being alert.
1st of March saw us flying the Welsh flag for St David’s Day and on Sunday 6th we flew a 90th birthday flag for Mr Alan Muhley.
The Rutland flag flew to celebrate the feast day of St Tibba and St Eabba on 7th and on Thursday 10th we flew the 70th birthday flag for Liz Hastings. Happy birthday from us all.
I’m sure that everyone is aware that the flag committee try to fly appropriate flags. Wwe would love to be able to fly a Ukraine flag but unfortunately we are unable to get one. Nevertheless we support one hundred per cent the people of Ukraine and are supporting them in other ways.
The flags we currently hold are:- Golden Wedding, 60th wedding, Just Married, It’s a Boy/Girl, Happy Birthday (plain) plus 90th, 70th, 60th, 40th, 21st, 18th, Merry
Christmas, New Year, School and Happy Retirement.
If we can help you to celebrate a special occasion by flying one of our lovely flags, for a small donation towards the upkeep of the pretty flagpole garden and the purchases of flags, please feel free to contact us and we can arrange for the relevant flag to be flown for you on the day or as near to the day as possible.
If you would like the Union Flag flown at half mast for the passing of a local resident on the day of their funeral please do contact us and we would be more than happy to do this for you.

MALLARD PASS ACTION GROUP: Another busy month of activity. Both Gareth Davies MP and Alicia Kearns MP spoke passionately at a packed Westminster Hall debate about large scale solar farms. Talking about the unacceptable scale of Mallard Pass Alicia Kearns said: “That is 1,400 football pitches—eight times larger than the current biggest solar plant in the country, and bigger than Monaco or the Vatican.“ Gareth Davies said “I want you to have a voice, so when there is a consultation, please let your voice be heard.”
The next stages of consultation needs your input. Mallard Pass have hopefully now issued a draft Statement of Community Consultation. Statutory Consultees such as your Parish, District and County Councils are being asked for their views on the for-mat and how you would like to be consulted. Please write to mallard.pass@ south-kesteven.gov.uk with your views, copying in your local councillors and Mallard Pass Action Group. Following this is the next and final public consultation where everyone’s input will be critical.
A major step forward for Mallard Pass Action Group is the launch of a new website www.mallardpassactiongroup.com Please sign the online petition and donate to the fund as we fight the might of big business. Sign up to our newsletter and volunteer to help the campaign in the next consultation stage. If you have any queries or can lend a hand email email@example.com
RYHALL LIBRARY (OPEN HOUSE): The Library will be closed on Good Friday, but our volunteers will be ready and keen to serve you on the Tuesday after Easter, as well as all other Tuesday and Friday afternoons during the month of April.
Remember that the second Tuesday of the month is the day we welcome knitters and craftworkers to chat and share your hobbies at our Knit ‘n’ Natter group. Also that our experienced mentor, Tony Critchard, is present every Tuesday afternoon to help you research your family’s history on our superfast broadband computers.
We have been able to welcome four new volunteers into the team over the last few months, thus filling the gaps left at the end of last year and bringing the team up to a reasonable strength once again. It is pleasing and encouraging to receive such re-sponse to our appeals for help, and to see that the library continues to be so highly valued by the community.
If anyone else feels they would like to give just a couple of hours per month to this undemanding, but important, activity, please do get in touch with us. And please do the same if you have any good ideas for activities you would like to see introduced which could be suitably accommodated in the library building.
