Heritage Weekend

             Heritage weekend June 27/28th  

Our third local history and heritage 2 day weekend event. Over the two days we had a series of different exhibits including a table of Big Dig excavation finds, many questions were asked about them but as yet we still need professionals to look at them and tell us what we have found...


Iron and metal objects

Animal bones

A neolithic flint blade

Interesting stones with fossilisations

Working blacksmiths slag with added extras!

We also had the Pilgrimage of Grace from Pocklington attending and they were very passionate about telling the story to entralled visitors...

Our village timeline exhibition is always well looked at, and the tombola and book stall sales were very successful.

The bridge toll over the two days was again a great addition to our funds, the generous passers by and drivers who were 'pillaged' by the vikings are to be thanked for their donations.

The cafe was well used by all and the spear pies were on the menu again.

Overall a very happy and easy going event, even though the visitor numbers were not as high as last years, but the weather was probably a factor in that.

Well done to all and thanks for the efforts put in on the food, tolls, books, tombola, setting up and cleaning up too.
