Saturday 7th September 2019
It was the Embsay-with-Eastby village fete today so we set up our little History Group stall. We were in a prime position which was excellent, and the sun came out encouraging a good turnout of residents.
Our village has a wonderful community base and there’s always a good atmosphere at village “dos” like this.
Our display was on the history of the Post Office, which from the 1870s to the present day has moved several times, mostly within the Elm Tree Tree Square – Shires Lane area at the top of the hill.
We made several new contacts and were able to talk to many people about the village history. There certainly is an audience for our work.
Overall a very satisfying day.
