Thank You to everyone that attended the lighting of the Beacon to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday What a wonderful turn out by villagers and friends from other areas – and also our wonderful 90+ year old’s that came along. A birthday cake was cut in honour and everyone was in good singing voice and there was plenty of flag waving.
We are now preparing for the 2016 Carnival. 24th – 26th June. Booking forms for a stall are now available – if you haven’t received yours yet please let me know! We have decided to have a “Viking” theme to mark the 950 anniversary of thee Vikings landing in Riccall. So feel free to come in costume! We are hoping to have a display of long boats made by the school children & the local football group are organising a mini tournament.

On April 21st the Queen will be celebrating her 90th Birthday! Buckingham Palace has requested as many beacons up and down the country to be lit, The Parish Council has registered Riccall and we have a confirmed time of 7-30 for it to be lit. So come on down to Riccall Park (the rec) with your flags and singing voices.
