Forthcoming Local History Dates

scan0005 po mid30s on green

After a very successful history day on local businesses we are now planning our forthcoming meetings. Many will examine the topic of Slingsby in Wartime, culminating in an event on this in 2014, which will be the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The Group’s work will cover a wider war and battle theme, bearing in mind that the Slingsby Castle site dates from medieval times through to the Civil War, and the village felt the effects of war in both the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Local History Group meetings will be a mixture of working meetings, comparing and presenting work that the Group is aiming to carry out, and more formal talks. All meetings take place in the Village Hall Committee Room at 7.30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month. They are open to all, but we ask those who attend to contribute £1 towards the cost of hall hire.

Details of talks etc. will be confirmed in The Triangle and on the Slingsby Village Website. Dates for your diary are as follows: Tuesday 16th April, Tuesday 21st May, Tuesday 18th June and Tuesday 16th July 2013.
