Village flag lowered

Once again the village flag has been lowered, in memory of Mavis Johnson, who has passed away this week, aged 86.

Mavis came to the village as a young child and stayed for over 60 years until she moved to a bungalow at Five Lane Ends to avoid having to cope with stairs. Mavis was the mum of 8 children, including Brenda Grimes, vice-chairman of Burghwallis Parish Council and Sylvia Burtoft, who both still live in the village. The funeral will be a private arrangement.
