TERRINGTON 2020 LAUNCH EVENT Sunday 9th February 2020
On behalf of Terrington Arts, Lesley Bradshaw, Gerry Bradshaw, Keith Adkins and Jane Hanstock would like to thank everyone who turned out at the height of storm Ciara to come along to the launch event for our new project to put up some Interpretation Boards in the village. Over 80 people came, from a few months old to 86 (or older?), newcomers to the village as well as lifelong residents. New acquaintances were made and there were lots of animated discussions over what we’d put into our displays. A number of people continued their conversations over the refreshments and cake, which also went down well.
For those of you who were away on the day here are a few photos.
We started off by showing all about the project.
More details of the proposed Interpretation Boards can be found on the Terrington 2020 - A New Project page.
There was lots to look at because the village has always had a strong community spirit and it has come together over the past 25 years to make plenty of things happen.
Clues to our Quiz questions could be found in the displays so it was heads down.
We then took people on a time journey, back from the Millennium all the way to the 1700s when Terrington became a Castle Howard village.
We showed photos and maps and told you some of what our History groups had found out over the years but you told us, the organisers, so many more stories and filled in many more gaps.
We had slideshows of the Millennium Photo collection of the whole parish, outside their homes, taken in 2000, and its predecessor, the Wimbush Photos, taken in 1933 by the then Rector, James Wimbush.
You also told us what makes Terrington special, today. You told us it is a very welcoming village that still has that community spirit and a strong sense of history. You love the countryside and the walks on our doorstep. Many of you wouldn't live anywhere else.
One of our boards will be at the Village Hall and will show walks in the Parish. The Howardian Hills AONB is supportive of the Project and will be an excellent resource.
There’s much to see (and hear!) when out and about around Terrington.
