2020 Calendars

We are often asked about our calendars so here is advance notice: 2020 Calendars will be on sale  at Children In Distress from September and the theme will be pubs of the past, 13 in total will feature. Don't leave it too late to order one, they are limited in number and we do not reprint them again. 

They will be £7.50 each with all proceeds going to the Kirkbymoorside Community Archives, which holds the history of our town. 

Noo then - Ow ist tha?

An evening of dialect stories and tales with our very own Adam Collier, speaker in Yorkshire Dialect, who has kindly agreed to talk from 7 - 9pm in the Methodist Chapel, Piercy End on Friday evening 4 October 2019. Tickets will be on sale from Monday 29 July - Children in Distress and Moorside Stores will have tickets priced at £5 each. There are only 40 available so don't delay.

And finally....

If you are having a clear-out of those forgotten boxes, garage or attic, please remember us if you come across anything you feel may be of interest to the history of our town and surrounding villages. All too often invoices, books, records, photos or a piece of memorabilia gets discarded. We are happy to take in donations of all kinds, dresses, boxes, ornaments even tools, have all been added to our growing archive in Kirkbymoorside.
