FRRL enjoy helping Library Services create a lively and interesting social, educational and cultural hub at the Library for the community to enjoy.

An Annual Programme of events is organised to entertain and inform covering an eclectic mix of topics for gatherings of up to 60 folk.

See our Facebook page, Twitter, Library noticeboards for more event information.

2020 Diary 

FRRL is delighted to report that there will be a Apple Day this year on Friday 18 September.

This will be a much-truncated version when compared to previous years, but FRRL wants to do something. The bug must not win!

Do come along on Friday 18th September and collect a bag of apples from 10.15 a.m. to 12 noon.

There will be no charge, so no change will be handled.

The apples will be provided in new paper bags marked ‘eaters’ or  ‘cookers’.

There are two locations to collect from: 

  • Rock Road Library, front garden, or
  • 30 Rock Road (Anne Davenport, who organises the back garden maintenance team).
At both locations, it is important to maintain social distancing, and it will help the safety of others if you can please wear a mask.
A FRRL member will be there to help.
If you have spare apples please give them into Nigel Blackmore 24 Rock Road, before 19th September.
Just leave them in his front driveway. He will sort out and bag up.
Nigel can also arrange collection from you, and even do a spot of apple picking,  email:  or phone  07903 800 838.
Without your apples to share around, we may have a problem, so hope you can help.!
