On Saturday 18th June a party of 13 members of the East Yorkshire Local History Society came, on the Society’s annual church studies day, to visit the five ‘Low Village’ churches. The sequence of guided visits, dictated by needing to work round other bookings, was; South Ferriby, Worlaby, Bonby and then after lunch Horkstow and Saxby All Saints. Unlike, for example, the W.E.A. the E.Y.L.H.S. to not collate formal appraisals but the verbal feedback on the day seemed positive – and it didn’t rain.
On Saturday 25th June a group of 13(!) members of Hull Georgian Society came to Barton for a guided walk entitled ‘Georgian Barton’. Again the informal feedback seemed very positive – and it didn’t rain. As this was my first formal contact with H.G.S. I am pleased to have been of some service.
