For those of you who were children during the war and remember what went on in Slingsby at that time, or the period just after it, there will be another discussion to record your wartime memories as we did earlier this year about farming. This will take place in the parlour at The Grapes over a cup of coffee or tea and a scone, on Saturday 8th December at 10.30am.
Details of our meeting on Tuesday 15th January 2013 will be posted online soon, or please see the next edition of the Triangle.
Our Local History Day for 2013 has been arranged for Saturday 9th March. The meeting will take place in the village hall and church, and the theme will be ‘Shops and Businesses in Slingsby’. The February meeting will most likely be taken up with preparing contributions for this, as well as a possible assembly for the school. One idea already, is to create a village trail which would illustrate the extent of the businesses in Slingsby in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. We also hope to do another recording of your memories .
The theme for our Local History Day in March 2014 will be Wartime Slingsby.
