An opportunity not to be missed

Stonefall war gravesElizabeth Smith from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission travels around the country talking about the work of the CWGC which maintains all the headstones and memorials to the fallen of WW1 and WW2 throughout the world. As well as talking to groups and school children, last year she conducted two fully-booked Heritage Day visits to Stonefall Cemetery in Harrogate, which included the histories of some of the nearly 1000 air crew members who are buried there.

Elizabeth will be giving free tours of the war graves at Stonefall as part of Heritage Open Days over the weekend of the 12th / 13th September. The numbers are very limited (5 to a tour and only 6 tours) due to Covid restrictions. All tickets need to be booked in advance and the link to book is via the HOD site: https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting/event/commonwealth-war-graves-walk-and-talk-stonefall-cemetery-harrogate

Update September 3rd    –   All places have now been booked.  Thank you for your support.

End of an era

Train station newsagentAfter 30 years of service, the Bookstall newsagents in Harrogate train station is closing. This shop stocked a really comprehensive selection of magazines. It was always handy if you wanted to pop in for something to eat or drink – or perhaps a little light reading for your journey. Not to mention greetings cards, guide books ….. This was a vital part of Harrogate station and will be missed.

Yet another ‘end of an era’

Stray FM EZGMJz_WsAIi9DMStray fm radio station will cease broadcasting this week. Yet another local radio station which will no longer provide local news and support local initiatives. The staff at the station worked so hard on behalf of the local community by publicising and reporting on local events and achievements – both group and individual. As well as providing up-to-date weather and traffic reports. It will be sadly missed.
