More Feathery Friends

David Thornley has sent in some more great bird photographs taken over the summer with an automatically triggered camera mounted near his bird feeder – very similar to the triggered cameras sometimes used by wildlife photographers and film-makers.

I think you’ll agree that the results are pretty impressive.

Esther Dennis – Obituary

Esther Dennis died at her home in Slingsby on Saturday November 16th at the age of 86. 

Esther lived in Slingsby for 25 years after living at Burythorpe and running a small farm producing poultry and pigs.  This was how she made her living and how she supported her 4 children, Rachel, Paul, Ruth & Stephen, following the death of her husband David, a local auctioneer, at an early age.
Esther had a strong Christian faith, was a lifelong Methodist and a Local Preacher for 65 years and was very active until only a few months ago.  She helped to run the Womens Fellowship in Slingsby and was a member of the Yorkshire Countrywomens Association.  She also helped to deliver “meals on wheels” in Malton & Norton for over 30 years.  Esther was highly respected over a wide area and was a person who many people turned to for help and advice. Esther got on well with people of all ages and took great pleasure in being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren and only recently was helping to feed her twin great granddaughters, Grace & Chloe.  She will be greatly missed.

The funeral service will be on Thursday 28th November at Saville Street Methodist Church Malton at 1pm.

The Website and Triangle team offer their condolences to Rachel and the family.
