A new display by the Skidby Mill 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 football 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. David Marchant, 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.
