Saturday 26th April 2014, Slingsby Village Hall and All Saints Church.

Annual Local History Event :  WARTIME SLINGSBY

A look at Slingsby’s wartime connections from Medieval times up until the Second World War.  A one day event in Slingsby Village Hall and Slingsby Church. Exhibition, talks and recording sessions of Second World War memories of Slingsby.  More details in next April’s Triangle. Watch this website as we count down to the big day. There may be a few surprises.

Slingsby was a military training centre and there were munitions storage areas around the area. Those who were teenagers remember the atmosphere and life in the village then. Some may also remember their parents talking about what life was like in the first world war when Slingsby lost many of its young men of combat age. We hope to cover all aspects of life including what happened on farms, food, music, entertainment etc. If you would like to help researching all this or you think you have information which would interest the group, please come along to our 28 January or 25 February meeting in the Village Hall. Our aim is to collect  and capture information for future generations before it is forgotten.
