Ruyton Revisit facebook page

Message from John Guest, Doctor`s Meadow.

John Guest has started  a `Ruyton Revisted` facebook page and it is already doing very well, with people sending in their memories.    Colin Case has added pictures and videos of the Charter celebrations and Margaret Lycett has added videos of various times Ruyton has been on the TV.

Anyone wanting to join the Facebook page needs to search for `Ruyton Revisited` on Facebook.

In the meantime, Irena White continues to do major research on Ruyton XI Towns which she collates and files.   My information on the village is also mostly collated and filed both on computer and hard copy.  Margaret Lycett has all the school history stored and her memory is always mine of information.

Where our records will be stored for the future is an ongoing worry for us - nobody is going to dig up our computers in a 1000 years and discover our work!

Support Flicks in the Sticks in Myddle

On Wednesday, three people from the mailing list were at the Myddle Flicks in the Sticks to see the film `The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society`.

The new guests were impressed with the venue, good parking, tea, coffee wine, beer and snacks at the beginning and at half time, excellent big screen and sound (not ear poundingly loud) and a chance to meet a new and friendly group of people.

Oh yes, and the film was excellent - good story, beautiful scenary and eliciting both laughs and damp eyes.

Please support this venture, which is so easy to get to,

See you at Bohemian Rhapsody next month.

Event News! David Nott - War Doctor: Surgery on the Frontline
View this email in your browser

An Evening with


Join us for an evening in the company of David Nott one of the world's most experienced trauma surgeons as he talks about his new book War Doctor: Surgery on the Frontline.

For more than twenty-five years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world's most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

The conflicts he has worked in form a chronology of twenty-first-century combat: Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Darfur, Congo, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Gaza and Syria. But he has also volunteered in areas blighted by natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal.

Driven both by compassion and passion, the desire to help others and the thrill of extreme personal danger, he is now widely acknowledged to be the most experienced trauma surgeon in the world. But as time went on, David Nott began to realize that flying into a catastrophe – whether war or natural disaster – was not enough. Doctors on the ground needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts upon its victims. Since 2015, the foundation he set up with his wife, Elly, has disseminated the knowledge he has gained, training other doctors in the art of saving lives threatened by bombs and bullets.

War Doctor is his extraordinary story.
