Councillor Kathryn Davies, Mayor of Knaresborough

A Truly Historic Event

by Helen, our own roving reporter.
The Platinum Jubilee weekend proved popular in Knaresborough with a very good turnout and many people attending the party in the park at Knaresborough House on 4th June. How lovely it was to see so many of you also celebrating by visiting the Community History Event held inside Knaresborough House from 2nd to 4th June, where it was possible to view and have your say on the new museum plans – the opening of which is due next year in the Castle Girls School.
There was much enthusiasm for the model of Knaresborough Town centre complete with its model railway and other items of interest such as Heritage crafts and a Victorian play area for children.
Knaresborough Historical Society manned a stand to demonstrate and promote the kinds of talks available from October to May each year with members of the society on hand to impart relevant information. On Thursday we were honoured with a visit to the stand by our new Mayor, Councillor Kathryn Davies, and her husband Robert who both showed a keen interest in our society.
Our new season will begin on Tuesday 4th October and a programme will be available later in the summer and we hope to welcome all who have an interest in history.
