Today I was off to the great Ryton Hirings fair, which takes place over the bank holiday weekend and is run by the Lions. It's a great event and I was there to help on the Tombola stall. I must confess to not being much help so went around to have a look. I bumped into hard working local councillor Noel Rippeth, who was giving tours of the church, whilst his wife and councillor Ione Rippeth, led the choir on the piano. I learnt a lot that I didn't know about this marvelous church, one of the oldest in the local area. The event is great and needs to be encouraged.
