Countryside Days - Schools Out

Mid-June saw two hectic but successful Countryside Days at Harrogate, a partnership event with Dales Countryside Museum. Thousands of school children from across Yorkshire and beyond converged on the Great Yorkshire Showground to enjoy an action-packed day of fun and education at the annual Countryside Days. Schools Out ran five workshops of hands-on living history activities each day and received very positive feedback. This event provides opportunities to engage harder-to-reach schools from further afield, as well as good networking opportunities. We will be back next year and we might even dress up!

Capturing the Past – website launched!

This exciting project, managed by the Friends of the Dales (formerly the Yorkshire Dales Society), aims to make collections of historical material held by local history groups and individuals freely accessible to the public. Over the past year the project team, together with archivists from the North Yorkshire County Records Office, has been providing training and guidance to volunteers and collection holders, including how to digitise archive materials.
