FINGHALL HISTORY PROJECT  

 

VILLAGE INFORMATION LECTERN

 

 

Dear Villagers,

By now most of you will have seen that an Information Board, outlining a series of historic events in Finghall's past, has been erected outside the Queens Head. Our small village has an amazing past and the History Group, who designed the board, had difficulty in deciding what to include and what to leave out!

You may be interested to know that the lectern is actually made from recycled plastic, and the graphics panel is fully sealed with an anti-graffiti coating.

Richmondshire MP, Rishi Sunak, had indicated that he would attend at Finghall to officially unveil the lectern. However, whilst trying to find a suitable date in his diary the coronavirus crisis deepened and the idea was obviously abandoned.

This project has only been possible with help from our Community, and we would therefore like to thank the following people and organisations:

•  Firstly, all those Villagers (past and present) who supplied photographs and information.

•  Helen and Ian at the Queens Head for allowing the lectern on their land.

•  Eddie Miller (Lowmill Landscapes) and his staff for erecting the lectern free of charge.

•  Barbara Walker for her help and guidance throughout.

•  Richmondshire Area Partnership for assistance with funding.

 

Thank you The Finghall History Group who currently comprise of:

Nick Horn (Chairman), Andy Jefferys (Treasurer), Neil & Beverly Smeeton, Roy and Marjorie Blake, Charlotte Roberts, Eddie Hemsley.
