New Display At Skidby Windmill Looks At ‘Time Off’

A new display by the volunteer team has opened this week.

‘Time off: leisure & diversions in the East Riding’ covers a variety of ways in which local people spent their spare time, both in days gone by and more recently.

Subjects covered include seaside entertainments, cycling, cinemas, local teams and so-called ‘blood sports’ that are illegal today, like cockfighting.

The exhibition features a variety of items from the Museums Service’s collections, as well as loans from the archive of North Ferriby United football team and images from East Riding Archives.

Said Dr. , museums registrar with East Riding of Yorkshire Council:

“I know the volunteers have particularly enjoyed researching this display, which aims to cover a wide range of topics and which has dug up some fascinating details.”

The display will run until April 2020.
