The next meeting of the Society will be the AGM, to be held at 6.30 pm on Wednesday, 19 April, at the Friends’ Meeting House, New Earswick (at the far end of the Folk Hall car park). After a brief business meeting, Carolyn and Katherine will talk about what they have discovered from the 1911 census about the first residents of the village. At that time there were only xxx people living in the village. Where did they work? Where did they live? Where had they come from?
The Society has been been very lucky. The York branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild offered, towards the end of 2019, to include the Society’s logo – a picture of a typical group of New Earswick houses – in a hanging to be placed above the main entrance to the Folk Hall. Now it is there to be admired by all. Very many thanks to the Embroiderers’ Guild!
