Just a quick reminder the Slingsby Local History Day will take place on Saturday 9th March in the Slingsby Village Hall and All Saints Church.
The focus this year will be on local business and how Slingsby made a living; before the railways were invented, few people ever went outside the villages of Slingsby, South Holme and Fryton unless they could walk long distances. The village businesses met all needs and also provided jobs for those who did not work in farming. This year’s local history event is about the large number of non-farming businesses.
Come along and find out where and what the businesses were, and enjoy the small exhibition and film. Refreshments will be on sale throughout the day, and will include coffee, tea, cakes, scones, soup and roll at lunch time.
Recording of memories of Slingsby (by invitation) will take place at 10.30 a.m. in the Village Hall. Please contact Margaret Mackinder on 01653 628303 if you would like to take part. Dr. Kate Giles and Margaret Mackinder will lead an open discussion and summary of the recording session at 2.30 p.m.
Admission to Slingsby Local History Day is £2.00.
