A really good crowd assembled for the launch of our Monkton Heritage Leaflet. We were pleased to welcome guests Kate Lindley of Planed, who arranged for the production of the leaflet, and George Lewis, who illustrated it. Chairman gave a short, illustrated talk about what we as a Society are hoping to accomplish and work in progress. The leaflet is a good beginning to our publishing ambitions.
The exhibition covered the history of Monkton as well as photographs of its more recent past which have been collected since the commencement of the Monkton History Project just one year ago - see March 2010 entry. It was a busy morning but hugely enjoyable.
