Market Rasen Mail 1971

The RHS Members have been receiving newsletters during the lockdowns and in March’s edition we discussed the D-Day of 15th February 1971.

So what other things happened in 1971?

Look at the new Post on scrapbook of 1971

There was a National Postal strike and the Market Rasen Mail reminded their readers that the Post Office was open for other transactions but no post.

The railway bridge in Queen Street was hit by a digger, road and rail routes were closed to repair the damage.

Several shopped closed- Freda children’s wear shop on the corner of Queen Street and Oxford Street and Hyde shop and hairdressers in the Market Place. But good news

The town’s new Library was opened at the beginning of 1971. The old library in King Street was too small and not fit for purpose. The new library in Mill Road was official opened on 21st April by Ald. Mrs A.B.Nettleship.
