FLAGPOLE :Due to the Death of her Majesty the Queen the Union flag was lowered
to half mast for the period of mourning ,which meant that all other flags were
suspended for that period of time.

An 80th birthday flag was flown for Alan Joblin with good wishes from all his friends
and on 1st October a 75th flag for Trevor Pettener from all the family.
On 12th October a flag flew to celebrate the 65th wedding anniversary of Philip and
Margaret Agnew. Many Congratulations.

Looking ahead to Remembrance Day, we always tidy the war
graves in the old cemetery, putting poppies and crosses on the

Over the years we have noticed a little wooden cross off to the
right as you come in through the gate. It usually has a white
plastic flower on it, but during this year a small spray of poppies
has appeared on the cross.

Does anyone know whose grave this is or the story behind it?
We would like to tend it along with the others.

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

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.

Calling all jigsaw puzzlers!
Did you know that Ryhall Library has a collection of jigsaw puzzles which can be borrowed
free of charge, just the same as the books?
Why not drop in and have a look at the collection?
Jigsaws and books can be taken out on loan at any of the Library opening times, including
the Open House days of Tuesday and Friday.
And remember that Ryhall Library is happy to be a warm place where any village

Our world is full of scams and the scammers are quick off the mark with ways to hoodwink us all. Action fraud has warned us that they are receiving increasing reports of fake text messages supposedly from the UK govern-ment.

The links in the emails lead to genuine looking websites that are designed to steal your personal details and financial information. 

Please note that you do not have to apply for the £400 off energy bills for households in Great Britain and you will not be asked for bank details.
