The Slingsby Maypole webpage

maypole raising in Slingsby 1905

Just over two years ago, the Slingsby village website launched with the aim of providing news and giving Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme an on-line presence.

The team went through the process of developing pages for the website and we thought we’d covered everything. We hadn’t. One iconic structure in the village was missing from the website – the Maypole.

Last week, a page dedicated to Slingsby’s Maypole went live on the website, just in time for the May Day celebrations due to happen in the village on May 6th. The page features a Maypole timeline and a brilliant YouTube video of the raising of the current Maypole dating back to May 1985.
