Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...
I was proud to be among a large crowd of Riponians present in the Market Place on Sunday afternoon. We’d gathered there to hear the Proclamation, read out from the balcony of the Town Hall by Mr Richard Compton, Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire. How poignant it was that the banners hung up to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee were still in place.
Afterwards, we sang ‘God Save the King’ for the first time ever for almost everyone present and gave three hearty cheers for Charles III. Vivat Rex!
