In our June 2021 issue...
Loftus has received funding to help transform its High Street in an exciting regeneration project... Hearing this good news, we investigated and found plenty of interest going on in Loftus (pages 3–7).
Also exciting is the news from RAF Fylingdales of a successful funding bid to build a public archive of plans, photos, documents recording 60 years of RAF space heritage. Rich Weeks’ new series on the world of space and objects traced by the early warning station begins this month (page 17).
Ryedale Folk Museum at Hutton-le-Hole has launched weddings with a difference at their heritage buildings (page 21) and is calling for submissions to an open art exhibition exploring the impact of the pandemic on artists (page 23).
At Kildale, the Hidden Valleys Community Project is on the hunt for the lost chapel of St Hilda, and no experience is needed if you’d like to join the team (page 29).
David Wilson shares memories of the Danby and Castleton Church Players (page 35), while John Roberts reviews Chris Scott Wilson’s book The History of Saltburn (page 33).
And finally, we have two excellent short stories . . . from Joe Watson and Sue Barlow. Thank you so much everyone for your contributions!
Now, we have an exciting announcement to make... We’ve decided to publish a bumper Summer issue – July and August combined – which will be a special double- length magazine on the theme of Trees, in the shops for the summer and costing £3. We hope you like the idea. Already we have lots of interesting articles promised but we’d love more... So if you have a favourite woodland walk, a tree you stop to admire, a planting project, a story, a poem, a photo or painting you’d like to share, please send it to us before 20 June.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
