If any further evidence were needed of the worldwide reach of Slingsby’s new website, please see the following message recently received from Perth, Western Australia:
“To the people of Slingsby Village
Congratulations on the success of the History weekend. I have just watched
the video presented by Kate Giles. It is a shame that such a weekend was not
on when we spent our three weeks in Slingsby in October last year. My late
father, William Henry Wright was born I Slingsby in 1898 and he died in
Australia, when I was 6 years of age. Our stay in the village was to fill in
some of the gaps in my family history. I discovered numerous Wright cousins
still living in the village – and donated to the Church Tower appeal in
memory of my father. My husband and I hope to visit your beautiful village
again in the next few years and we wish you every success with your website
and also with All Saints Church Tower Appeal.
We look forward to seeing the various historical documents in future visits.
With best wishes.
Jenny and Robert Fuller and family (Jeanette Wright)
