Creepy Crawlies Invade Ross Library

Children enjoyed the company of snails, spiders, millipedes and snakes at Ross Library during the half term holiday when Emma Southcott of 'Educational Displays' visited with her 'Zoo Lab' show.

Willing children and squeamish parents were able to hold the likes of, Brian, the snail, Toady, the toad and Tango, the corn snake as well as a millipede, cockroach and guinea pig. They were also able to view a large tarantula, however, due to possible allergic reactions, this creature was only handled by Emma.

Wyenot News Featured Business of the Week
Architectural Ironmongery

As a free additional benefit to those local businesses supporting, every week Wyenot News chooses one local business at random to feature in the current issue of the weekly on-line news magazine.

The partnership of Roger Arnold and Richard Oakley was first established in 1971 as a joinery business. Due to its success, the business extended its range of products to include ironmongery in 1980. In 1985, Roger and Richard decided to concentrate on the mail order aspect of the partnership and in 2003, 'Arnold and Oakley' became 'Architectural Ironmongery Ltd.'

Architectural Ironmongery's extensive range of products are made from a wide range of high quality materials, including flat black, hand forged and black antique iron. All of their iron products are made of malleable iron rather than cast iron as it is more durable and does not break. Products are also available in chrome, brass, pewter and porcelain . . .
