NYD Webteam: July 2017
Over the weekend 21 July as part of the 'Leyburn Remembers' 1940's festival Leyburn Methodist Chapel hosted an exhibition of the history of the businesses in the town.
Marjorie Iveson, a member at the chapel, has spent the past two years researching & gathering material much to the delight of many local people visiting.
Marjorie is pictured as the steward at the exhibition which was open throughout the weekend.
When the exhibition closes on Sunday, Marjorie plans to collate all the information into a portfolio to go into Leyburn library.
The weekend proved to be fascinating with many folk dressed in 1940's period clothes; and vehicles, steam engines & stalls of the time in the square; one lady reported that hearing George Formby & his banjo singing through the speakers as 'quite odd'! Which it might do if you are that certain little lady.
