10 January 2018New Pages
The long Winter nights are a great time for making progress on projects.
This Winter the Archive has been working on a few new pages for their website. One is now available to view. It's called Stillington Snippets and comprises of short pieces gathered when trawling through old newspapers - usually looking for something else! There are articles, letters and notices, the earliest being from 1740 and latest from 1968. They cover unusual sporting activities, natural history and random, but interesting, news.
Another project is to put more pictures of Stillington's famous celebrations on the site. The starting point has been the 1977 Silver Jubilee. Most of the pictures have now been edited and will soon be available. It looks very much as though there will be a total of three pages - there are just so many pictures! Look out for those!
