Slingsby Local History group has, as planned, helped Malton Museum with its current Malton goes to Market exhibition. Maurag Carmichael and Margaret Mackinder have recorded interviews of peoples’ memories of shops and the market in Malton. These have now been edited and maybe heard at Malton Museum in Yorksersgate. Slingsby contributors are Maurice Woollons, Freda Ware and Stephen and David Prest. They are great interviews and definitely worth a listen. If you have memories you would like to contribute, please let us know.
The Museum is open at the moment from Thursdays to Saturdays, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. up to mid-October. Entry is free, but donations are welcome. Please do go along and have a listen to the interviews! The Market project will end after this season and a completely new exhibition is planned for 2019, so don’t miss this one.
